Erykah Badu will be playing a one-off live date in London.

The Grammy-winning On And On star will take to the stage at the O2 Academy in Brixton on July 24, to promote her latest album New Amerykah Part II: Return Of The Ankh.

The Dallas native's follow-up to 2008's New Amerykah Part I: 4th World War taps into her emotions and focuses on romance and relationships.

"With Part I, I was standing at an apex, looking at what was going on around me politically, socially, and economically. With Part II, I'm hovering over me, looking at what's going on inside of me," she said.

"There's a rumbling to these songs that feels good to me. It feels like a hug."

Tickets for the Brixton show will go on sale on April 30 at 9am.
