Main stage-playing, big tent-packing Jamie Webster heads indoors this month for the first time since a momentous summer festival season, playing his biggest UK Tour to date with a huge opening party at a SOLD-OUT Glasgow O2 Academy next week, but takes a minute before hitting the long road to release his latest single, Looking Good – OUT NOW.

The single arrives as an unapologetic celebration of glorious, defiant individuality and adds yet another crowd-pleasing, brass and strings-laden evocation of Webster’s innate, intuitive sense of protective, got-your-back songwriting for the downtrodden, out of luck and left outs. Looking Good’s optimistic, sunshine spirit shines bright across all three-and-a-half-minutes of air-punching, toe-tapping, drivetime melody, while throwing a protective veil around those facing the slings and arrows of malign prejudice. Putting arms around anyone forced into defence of their nature, life choices, personality or appearance, the song also serves as a self-directed pep talk in the face of cowardly on- and off-line criticism.

Jamie Webster says of the upbeat, yet poignant album highlight: “’Looking Good’ is a song about self-love, self-worth and self-happiness. It documents how you shouldn’t worry about what the latest trends or styles are. Just do what makes you happy with a smile on your face and you’ll be looking better than ever. It also nods towards online abuse I’ve received and subsequently dealt with in therapy. But now I understand more that these people project their own unhappiness on others and they’ll never have me feeling blue again.”

A run of seven winter UK Tour dates announced earlier this year was announced to include two near-immediate sell outs at Manchester’s O2 Victoria Warehouse, taking the proudly Liverpudlian artist just 45 minutes down the road from his Merseyside home. Heading into what might have once been seen as rival territory, Webster will play his songs of hope and resistance to 7,000 friendly faces.

Adding in a return to the capital, as well as that sold-out Glasgow date and a venue upgrade in Sheffield to his North West near-homecomings, all of Jamie’s confirmed live dates for the coming month and next summer are as follows:
