The tour comes on the back of the release of his eighth studio album Hollow Meadows, and is his longest UK tour in three years.

It sees Hawley return to the classic, sophisticated song-writing and subtle arrangements that made him so widely loved and revered in the first place as he meditates on such themes as ageing, fallibility and relationships.

A former member of indie bands The Longpigs and Pulp, Richard Hawley has twice been nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in a solo career that has received consistent high critical acclaim.

He has collaborated with the likes of Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker, the Arctic Monkeys, Paul Weller and Scunthorpe’s own Martin Simpson.

Both Jarvis and Martin are among the artists who appear on the new album.

His Baths Hall show is on Thursday, February 18 at 7pm and tickets are £25 from the box office on 0844 8542776 or online at
