Dave announces UK and Ireland tour

Dave has announced UK and Ireland tour dates, set to run through April and finishing with a two night run at Brixton Academy in May.

The rapper is set to release his debut album, ‘Psychodrama’, on 8 Mar, and has just put out new single ‘Black’. Annie Mac recently commented on negative reactions to the track, a reflection on black identity, after she had played it on her Radio 1 show.

“People are scared of the word black, they seem reluctant to have conversations around it”, she tells the NME. “People are feeling on the defensive and act like it’s not necessary to talk about it anymore. I find that really depressing and an absolute justification for that song. It’s so important that the song exists and it’s only when you see the texts and tweets coming in that you realise how important it is and how much work needs to be done in this country for racial equality”.
