The Belter singer took to Twitter to share his new dates, which will take place in August and September, following his huge homecoming show at Glasgow's Hampden Park in July.

However, the Scottish singer-songwriter wanted to assure his fans that he's still releasing his long-awaited sophomore album, The Bonny, on 17th April.

Taking to Twitter, he wrote: "Alright my pals. Hope everyone's safe and sound and looking after one another.

"Crazy times we're in. You all know the drill with events and stuff. Anyone that knows me knows all I care about is folks having a class night and getting home safe so it's a no brainer to move some of the earlier dates. Not ideal but pales in comparison to the shit other folk are going through."

The Sun Queen singer added: "Re: the album

"Not smart to release during a lockdown when the shops are closed and everyone's isolating, but no chance I'm letting folk down. Never gave a f*** about numbers anyway not gny start now.

Album's out 17th April."
