Ahead of the release of his highly anticipated new album, Heartbreaker Please, this coming Friday, Teddy Thompson has announced the dates for his re-scheduled UK tour, which were postponed due to Covid-19.
Teddy Thompson plays the UK dates ahead of supporting John Grant on his UK tour. He will perform at Pocklington Arts Centre on January 22nd 2021, and the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds on January 24th 2021.
Recorded in Brooklyn and written and produced by Teddy, Heartbreaker Please sees the critically acclaimed artist at the top of his craft, serving up the medicine of resignation with sweet, catchy satisfaction. “Here’s the thing,” Teddy sings frankly on his new album, “you don’t love me anymore. I can tell you’ve got one foot out the door.” From its opening track, Thompson’s new album reckons with the breakdown of love with a wistful levity as satisfying as it is devastatingly honest.
From a young age, Sam Cooke, Hank Williams, Chuck Berry, and the Everly Brothers made up the bulk of his listening and you can hear that ache in his voice. After releasing his self-titled debut in 2000, Teddy went on tour as part of Roseanne Cash’s band. Since then he’s released five acclaimed albums, collaborated with good friends Martha and Rufus Wainwright, contributed to numerous tribute projects, and produced albums for Americana singer-songwriter Dori Freeman, Shelby Lynne, Allison Moorer and his mother, Linda Thompson.
