FOLLOWING his one-night special at Koko at the end of August DJ Shadow has announced his first UK tour in four years this winter.

The DJ is poised to release his third album The Outsider on September 18 and will play 11 dates, including two nights at London’s Brixton Academy on December 15 and 16.

The full tour is as follows:
28 – Newcastle Academy
29 – Glasgow Academy
30 – Leeds University

2 – Sheffield Octagon
4 – Birmingham Academy
7 – Bournemouth IC Solent Hall
8 – Norwich UEA
9 – Manchester Academy
12 – Nottingham Rock City
13 – Bristol Academy
15 & 16 – London Brixton Academy

The Outsider marks DJ Shadow’s first new album since 2002’s The Private Press and features a host of guest artists including Kasabian, Q-Tip and Turf Talk.

Commenting on his website, the artist said: “The album is very diverse and reflects the fact that I don’t fit comfortably in any one genre. My critics see that as a problem, but I don’t… it’s simply the way things are.”

The release of the album will be followed by the single Enuff on September 24.
