    Michael Kiwanuka has announced a run of US tour dates this June, kicking off in Atlanta on June 9. Michael will be returning to New York City for the second time this year, and he will be playing his first-ever shows in Brooklyn, Philadelphia, and Washington DC. He will be performing songs from his debut album Home Again, which will be released on July 31 through Cherrytree Records.

    Last December, Michael sold out headlining shows in both Los Angeles and New York City following a run of supporting dates with Adele in the UK and Europe.

    You can watch Michael's performance of Home Again's first single "I'm Getting Ready" at the Hackney Round Chapel in London here. Or watch it down below.

    Home Again was produced by Paul Butler from The Bees (A Band of Bees in the U.S.) in his home studio on the Isle of Wight. The album takes Michael's effortless melodies, observant lyrics and smooth voice and builds them into timeless and rootsy folk-inflected modern soul. Michael and Paul played most of the instruments on the album.

    Born and raised in North London by Ugandan immigrants, Michael's music is drawing comparisons to Otis Redding, Bill Withers and Marvin Gaye.

    June 9 -- Atlanta, GA Smith Olde Bar
    June 10 - Nashville, TN @ 3rd & Lindsley
