A Brit Award-nominated artist is set to bring his tour to Brighton following the release of his new album.

Loyle Carner will perform at Brighton Dome following his rise to fame which includes an NME award, a nomination for the Mercury Prize and collaborations with artists such as Jorja Smith.

Carner was recently nominated as the best hip hop/grime/rap act at the Brits alongside Dave, Stormzy, Central Cee and winner Aitch following his third album, hugo.

Hugo has been described as “both a rallying war cry for a generation forged in fire and a study of the personal internal conflict that drives the rest of the album”.

The new album follows his previous work, Not Waving, But Drowning, which charted at number 3 in the UK in 2019.

The album was written during the Covid-19 pandemic, giving Carner a “sense of artistic freedom” due to the lack of festivals, photoshoots and shows.

He has also had collaborations with major brands such as Nike, Yves Saint Laurent and Timberland.

Loyle Carner will play at the Brighton Dome as part of his UK tour on Sunday, March 5.
