George Ezra will debut brand new songs at four Irish gigs this summer.

The British artist is taking his Top Secret tour to the Limelight, Belfast on May 26, the Millennium Forum, Derry on May 27, Dublin's intimate Olympia Theatre on May 29 and Limerick's Milk Market the following day.

“There is no need for me to point out the fact that I’ve been fairly quiet over the last year,” says George.

“But I’d like to reassure you all that I’ve been beavering away at what will one day be my second record. It took a second to work out what it was that I wanted to write about, and then how to approach the writing and recording process.

“I don’t want to give too much away regarding the record, but I do want to invite you all to join me on my first tour back.

"This tour will be like no other that I have done before for many reasons, but mostly because it will be the first time that a lot of brand new songs are played live."

The Budapest singer, however, adds that fans will also get to hear their favourite songs including Budapest and Blame it on Me.

"There will be a few new band members and we will be working out what the best set list is and what the best way to present the songs will be. We will focus less on smoke and mirrors and more on building the best show that we possibly can. We will of course be playing all of the classic Geoff Ezra singalong numbers too!"
