FREYA RIDINGS ANNOUNCES A NEW TOUR AND SINGLE
Following the success of her single ‘Lost Without You’, which has now surpassed 13 million streams, Freya Ridings today shares her new single ‘Ultraviolet’ on Good Soldier Records which was mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Amy Winehouse/David Bowie/Frank Ocean/Lorde). Freya also announces a 12-date headline UK tour in October, including The Globe Cardiff on Saturday the 20th of October, cementing Freya as the name to watch this year. Tickets wil go on sale Friday the 18th of May at 9am through ticketmster.co.uk.
‘Ultraviolet’ marks a striking evolution in Freya Ridings’ sound after the stripped-back style of past favourites ‘Lost Without You’ and ‘Blackout’. While Freya’s rich vocal tone exudes emotion, the production grows in intensity as the simple piano accompaniment of the introduction explodes into a climatic crescendo of sound. The result is a track, which underlines Freya’s credentials as a songwriter while also exploring a darker, more mature sound.
Since the release of singles ‘Lost Without You’, ‘Blackout’ and her spine-tingling cover of the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s classic ‘Maps’, Freya’s monthly listeners on Spotify have catapulted to over a million. The tracks have received support from European radio from BBC Radio 1, Radio X, 40PP in Spain to NDR2 in Germany, P3 in Norway, Today FM in Ireland and many more.
Fresh from touring the US with Ella Vos and the UK with Ray LaMontagne, Freya now prepares for a summer of festivals including Barn on The Farm, Montreux Jazz Festival, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits. Her ever growing live following around the world is coming to Cardiff in October.
