The London singer releases her follow up to Alright, Still next February

Lily Allen has announced details of a brand new UK Tour scheduled to start next spring.

The Smile singer will embark on a nine date tour beginning in Glasgow on 14 March.

Details of Allen's second LP -follow up to 2006's Alright, Still - have also been confirmed.

Proceeded by first single The Fear, Allen's new record entitled It's Not Me, It's You will be released on 2 February.

Speaking to Newsbeat after premiering the new single on Scott Mills' show the singer said: "It is a relief - I've listened to it a lot I've been living with it for a long time."

"It's nice to get it out there and knowing other people are listening to it and hearing their reactions."

The singer also admitted to being nervous about unveiling new material.

"Yeah I was terrified," she said. "It's a bit more dancey. That's the idea was to make something that would translate better in a live environment - that meant making it a bit more dark and dancier."

Allen will also play a one-off date to showcase new material at London's Koko on 28 January.

Tickets for the jaunt go on sale tomorrow (2 December).

The tour will visit:

Glasgow Academy - 14 March

Manchester Academy - 15

Bristol Academy - 18

Southampton Guildhall - 19

Brighton Dome - 20

Norwich UEA - 22

Birmingham Academy - 23

Leeds Academy - 24
