In honour of releasing her highly anticipated second album ‘Falling or flying’ later this month, (September 29th) Jorja Smith has announced a series of intimate headline shows. Beginning in her city of Birmingham on November 7th, she’ll stop in Manchester on November 9th, before concluding the short run in London on November 10th. Ticketing details can be found below:
Further to climbing the charts with her huge summer single ‘Little Things’, Jorja returned last month with ‘Falling or flying’; a sleek and soulful offering taken from her highly anticipated second album of the same name. In addition to releasing the new single, Jorja also unveiled the tracklist for the record which will include features from British rapper J Hus and Jamaican singer Lila Iké, alongside 12 brand-new, unreleased tracks.
Of the many British voices in music today, Jorja is among the most commanding, writing at a pitch of intensity and urgency that few can match. Over the past five and half years, since the release of her critically acclaimed debut album ‘Lost & Found’, she has been celebrated unanimously across the world for her evocative song-writing, powerful delivery, pure emotion and unbridled talent as a young woman navigating her way through life. It was in 2021 that Jorja’s hiatus from music was broken – enter ‘Be Right Back’, the holding space between the sensation that was ‘Lost & Found’, and her next project. ‘Be Right Back’ was born from playing, jamming, freestyling, and sounding out what Jorja had been on the edge of expressing all her life. It was a project entirely for her fans. “Be Right Back did exactly what I wanted it to do. It was a little waiting room so people knew I was coming back.”
