Ahead of the release his forthcoming album ‘Hugo’ the rapper has announced he is returning to the capital.

At the start of July, Loyle Carner shared his first solo music since 2020’s Madlib-produced single ‘Yesterday’. ‘Hate’ arrived with an air of change and was quickly followed up by ‘Georgetown’ which was also crafted by the legendary producer. With the accompanying video he announced his third album hugo.

Now, he’s revealed he’ll be celebrating the release of the album with a tour which includes a date in Dublin. Loyle Carner is returning to Vicar Street on 20 February 2023 to kick off his UK and Ireland tour with support to be announced.

hugo is set to be another personal record, with a focus on internal conflict. Additionally, there’s musings on the socio-political dynamics of the UK and his experience as a mixed-race man in Britain. The record is set to land on October 21.

The new record comes after Mercury Prize nominations, Brit nominations and his first two albums Not Waving But Drowning and Yesterday’s Gone.
