Fake will also debut a new live A/V show at the ICA on 7 April

Nathan Fake has announced details of his fourth album.

Providence is described as "his most personal and profoundly emotional work to date". The album was apparently created in a six-month period after Fake had suffered from a two-year bout of musical writer's block, and he says the process of recording it was "a massive step up both in my career and in my life in general... it felt like I'd come alive again".

Providence sees Fake working with vocalists for the first time, including Prurient (AKA Vatican Shadow) who guests on Degreelessness, and Braids singer Raphaelle Standell-Preston, who appears on the track RVK. The release of the album will be followed by a tour, with the UK dates as follows:

24 Kitchen Street, Liverpool (29 March)
Headrow House, Leeds (30 March)
Stereo, Glasgow (31 March)
Soup Kitchen, Manchester (1 April)
The Lantern, Bristol (5 April)
Music Hall, Ramsgate (6 April)
ICA, London (7 April)
Patterns, Brighton (8 April)
Contemporary Art Gallery, Nottingham (12 April)
Cluny, Newcastle (13 April)

Of particular interest is the show at the Institute for Contemporary Arts (ICA) in London on 7 April: that's when Fake will be debuting a new A/V show, though details of what this might involve have not been made public.

You can check out RVK below. To find out more, and for European/international tour dates, hit up Fake's own website.
