PRE-ORDER THE ALBUM TO OBTAIN PRE-SALE TOUR TICKETS*
Further to announcing her hugely anticipated debut album ‘Love & Compromise’, breakout star Mahalia has today unveiled its accompanying tour, the ‘Love & Compromise’ tour, which will see the songstress perform across Europe and North America. The tour will begin in Detroit on September 22nd, followed by a string of dates across America & Canada shortly before heading back to the UK for some of her biggest shows to date, including a date at London’s prestigious Roundhouse on November 25th. The songstress will then head out to Europe for several dates, which include stops in Norway, France, Germany with more to be announced.
Having also recently concluded her sold-out UK/European tour and a support slot on Ella Mai’s US tour, BRIT Award nominee Mahalia also announced details of her highly anticipated debut album ‘Love & Compromise’ last month. The record is set for global release on 6th September and includes two of her previous hit singles ‘I Wish I Missed My Ex’ and ‘Do Not Disturb’.
As an artist signed at just 13, ‘Love & Compromise’ is the rich fruit of Mahalia’s developmental journey thus far. On her debut LP Mahalia’s playfully infectious spirit intertwines with her youthful charisma, idiosyncratic storytelling and consciousness – attributes that have set her apart from her peers and seen her become one of the UK’s most-loved rising stars. Production and writing turns come from the likes of Sounwave (Kendrick, St. Vincent, Schoolboy Q), DJ Dahi (Drake, Pusha T), Sam Dew (Zayn, Taylor Swift) and Pop Wansel (Ariana Grande, Alessia Cara) as well as long-time collaborator Maths Time Joy. The record is executively produced by Felix Joseph who helps create the perfect sonic backdrop for Mahalia to shine and the result is a future-classic.
The Leicester native enjoyed an incredible 2018, quickly becoming one of the year’s most exciting breakthrough artists. She rode fast in her own lane, winning YouTube’s inaugural ‘One To Watch’ list and soon after became the only musician to be tipped for the BRIT’s Critics Choice Award and the BBC Sound Poll shortlists in the same year. Mahalia found success via her uncompromising, buoyant songs such as ‘Sober’ her debut single which was released in the summer of 2017 and ‘One Night Only’, a single which was taken from her hotly acclaimed 2018 EP ‘Seasons’.
With featured artists on the record still to be announced, the summer ahead will see Mahalia performing at a plethora of festivals including Glastonbury this coming Friday 28th where she will perform on the John Peel stage at 12:30pm.
