October UK Tour Announced
The Love Love Tour
New Single ‘This Pretty Face’ out 19th July
Album ‘A Curious Thing’ #1 in Europe!
Amy Macdonald, whose 3 million-selling debut album ‘This Is The Life’ made her one of the world’s most successful British female singer-songwriters, is back! Amy Macdonald released her highly anticipated second album ‘A Curious Thing’ on 8th March 2010, and its been flying high in most of the charts around Europe ever since. She returns with the release of her third single ‘This Pretty Face’ on the 19th July and a full UK Tour in October.
On its release ‘A Curious Thing’ hit the #1 spot in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and top 5 in a bunch of others including the UK, Holland, Belgium, Greece, Sweden to name a few. Amy supported the release with a comprehensive tour of Europe, which included a sold out UK tour and a knock-out set at the Shepherds Bush Empire.
Months, miles, club shows, pub shows, halls, theatres, festivals, encores, second encores: through good old-fashioned gigging, word-of-mouth enthusiasm and constant, overwhelming radio play Amy Macdonald went from being an unknown teenage Scottish singer-songwriter to international star. Being the ever-restless songwriter she’s been from her early teens, she’s alchemised those experiences into the sound of her second album, ‘A Curious Thing’. Big, bold and dramatic. Intimate, tender and touching. It’s Amy Macdonald, full-voiced and rebooted and reenergised, with added hammering piano and a couple of guest spots from Paul Weller (‘A Curious Thing’ was recorded at his studio in Surrey).
Amy Macdonald will spend the rest of the year touring and will be headlining some of the world’s major festivals through the summer and will embark on a tour across the UK this October:
