Ahead of an extensive autumn tour in UK, Europe and Ireland, indie-pop artist Villagers have announced three new shows for 2019, including their biggest London headline to date at The Roundhouse, the prestigious Manchester Cathedral and Wylam Brewery in Newcastle.

With the release of The Art Of Pretending To Swim nearing closer – out Sept 21st via Domino – Villagers also reveal a new track ‘Again’. The album’s opener, it belies its acoustically finger-picked origins as it builds steadily over a propulsive 808 kick drum, ultimately becoming a Moog-soaked epic of a tune and an exploration of self-renewal: “I’ve found again a place in my heart again / For God again in the form of Art again.”

Conor O’Brien aka Villagers has a string of accolades under his belt including two Ivor Novello Awards (the most recent being 2016’s Album Award for Darling Arithmetic), two Mercury Music Prize nominations and is also a previous winner of Ireland’s Choice Music Prize. Additionally, Villagers’ music recently featured in the high profile HBO drama ‘Big Little Lies’, Villagers has collaborated with the composer Nico Muhly (a track featuring in the forthcoming Paulo Sorrentino Berlusconi biopic ‘Loro 2’) and Villagers’ Spotify Session of ‘Nothing Arrived’ has hit over 100 million streams.
