Declan McKenna is adding dates to his extensive 40+ date U.S. headlining tour which begins January 31 in support of his new album What Do You Think About The Car?. Due to high demand, shows have been added or upgraded to larger rooms in select cities (full dates below). Austin, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, and Santa Ana shows have also sold out quickly. Tickets for the tour are on-sale now and available here.

McKenna has been announced as the newly crowned BBC Music “Introducing Artist of the Year” for 2017, as part of the BBC Music Awards. Since its launch in 2007, BBC Music “Introducing” has been dedicated to discovering and supporting new music. Previous winners of this prestigious award include Florence and the Machine, Ed Sheeran, and Catfish and the Bottlemen. “I'm delighted and honored to accept this award from BBC Introducing.” McKenna says, “I'd like to say a big thank you for relentlessly rooting for me throughout the years, no award could ever overshadow the time, effort and support given by so many others to get me to the point I'm at now, and for that I'm eternally grateful!”

Alongside his headlining dates, Declan McKenna will appear at area high schools for an intimate performance and Q&A with local students. McKenna will perform 3-4 songs acoustically, talk about his journey as a young songwriter and how music and performing have shaped his life. As Declan says in a recent Billboard interview: “Quite a big part of the album is about change and being confused… a lot of the headspace I was in was trying to make sense of growing up in a world with loads of crazy things happening.”

Declan McKenna’s debut album What Do You Think About The Car?, a collection of socially aware, melody-heavy indie pop songs, is out now via Columbia Records. The album was featured on NPR Music as a First Listen with NPR Music’s Bob Boilen noting, “Declan McKenna writes about a much bigger world than you or I might expect from a singer who only recently turned 18.”
