ONE of Britain's most prominent singer-songwriters is on his way to Somerset this summer.

Following on from the announcement of his much-anticipated second album, Life By Misadventure, Rag'n'Bone Man is to perform at Bath Racecourse on Saturday, July 31, 2021.

The blues singer made an award-winning breakthrough in 2017 with Human, a four-times platinum album which shot to number one on its week of release in the UK, became the fastest-selling album by a male artist for the entire decade, and earned him BRIT and Ivor Novello awards.

Rag'n'Bone Man headed to Nashville to write and record what would become Life By Misadventure, with the bulk of the album being produced and recorded by Grammy winner Mike Elizondo, who has previously worked with Eminem, 50 Cent and Alanis Morissette.

The new single from the album - Anywhere Away From Here (featuring P!nk) - is due for release on May 7, 2021.

Pre-sales for the Bath Racecourse show will be available from this Wednesday (April 28), before going on general sale from Friday (April 30), from ticketmaster and ticketweb.
