British superstar Paloma Faith will be bringing her new tour celebrating her new album to a North East town next summer.

The Glorification of Sadness Tour will be coming to the Stockton Globe on May 11 - with tickets for the show going on sale later this month (October 20).

The 26-date tour, which heralds a new era for the star, kicks off in Reading and will conclude with a show in Lincoln.

The show promises to deliver a "recharged, empowered and back in control" version of the singer as she returns to performing.

This comes as Faith gears up for the release of her brand new single and video ‘How You Leave a Man,' which will precede the release of Paloma’s sixth studio album ‘The Glorification of Sadness’ on February 16.

Faith said in a personal note to her fans that she was “Looking forward to sharing this new era.”

The album was produced by award-winning producer and composer Martin Wave and co-written with JKash, Andrew Wells, Ellie King and Charlie Puth.

A spokesperson for the tour said: "It’s confident. It’s cinematic. It’s empowering. It’s compelling from beginning to end, all powered by the kind of anthems that transformed her into an icon.

"The single is about finding the confidence to walk away from a relationship and being empowered with your own happiness, its limitless expression of pop allows it to sit comfortably next to Paloma’s many chart successors and then some.

"But ‘The Glorification of Sadness’ is more than an album about relationships. The celebration of finding your way back after leaving a long-term relationship, being empowered even in your failures and taking responsibility for your own happiness.

"It is her most personal album to date, drawing on her own experiences with Paloma acting as the anchor to direct a deeply personal narrative and album."

This is the first new music from Faith since the release of her fifth studio album ‘Infinite Things’ in November 2020, and is the first time she has executively produced a record.

It will also feature collaborations with Chase & Status, Kojey Radical, Maverick Sabre, Lapsley, MJ Cole, Fred Cox, Amy Wadge, Liam Bailey and Jaycen Joshua as part of the album.
