FOLLOWING the release of her debut album, Things I've Never Said, on March 17, Berkshire-born songwriter and multi award-nominated vocalist Frances announces her biggest European tour to date this spring, including a show at the O2 Academy in Newcastle.

From delivering knockout performances at last year's Glastonbury, Coachella, Latitude, Dockville and Lollapalooza festivals to playing to a sold out crowd for her headline show at KOKO in May, Frances has been honing her powerful, yet intimate live shows to crowds across the globe.

Now, to coincide with the release of her hotly-anticipated debut album, Britain's next big star returns for a string of special dates throughout the UK and Europe.

Collaborating with the likes of Greg Kurstin (Adele), Jimmy Napes (Sam Smith, Alicia Keys) and Howard Lawrence (Disclosure), 'Things I've Never Said' is a deeply personal, emotive collection tracking the last two years of Frances' story.

From touchingly-honest ballads like 'Let It Out' and 'Cry Like Me' to classic, upbeat pop production on 'Say It Again', the album represents the impressive range of the young artist. A range you can clearly see in her upcoming single 'Grow', a track that launched her career and gained Frances the ears of both the public and the industry. A new mix of the single will be available to buy and stream from January 2017.

'Grow' features on the soundtrack of 'Mum's List', a film by Niall Johnson starring Rafe Spall and Emilia Fox which is currently in UK cinemas nationwide.
