Following the release of her critically acclaimed debut album – IRAINA MANCINI – will be hitting the road for an extensive run of UK shows this Autumn.

With ‘Undo The Blue’ out now, Iraina and a full live band will be performing its songs at 14 venues nationwide between 5th September to 14th October. Tickets for all shows are on sale now – full dates and details below.

Featuring the BBC 6Music playlisted tracks “Cannonball”, “Undo The Blue”, “Do It (You stole the rhythm), Deep End and Shotgun. ‘Undo The Blue’ has already proven a hit with music lovers and media alike, with The Times’ 4* review praising Iraina as “a new heroine to make us swoon.. intoxicating”.
With all tracks on the album written by Iraina, it’s a record that also finds her collaborating with a who’s who of musical talents including Simon Dine (Paul Weller), Jagz Kooner (David Holmes, Primal Scream) and Sunglasses For Jaws (Miles Kane), who have all produced the record along with additional production from Erol Alkan (The Killers, Duran Duran, Ride). The album was released on Needle Mythology Records, the label founded by music writer, author and broadcaster Pete Paphides.

Teasing the release with the bluesy psych-pop bop of “What You Doin’”, this latest single also features appearances from Miles Kane and Kitty Liv (of Kitty, Daisy & Lewis). Speaking about how it came together Iraina says:

“I wrote [“What You Doin’”] about someone not being able to see what’s right in front of them, and If they don’t act soon, then you’re not waiting around! It’s got a lot of attitude and confidence. I love the live feel the song has, it was great to have Miles Kane (guitar) and Kitty Liv (harmonica) come down to the studio to jam on the track. Their parts added an extra sprinkle of magic to the song.”

Iraina is now preparing to take her music out on the road for what will be her first major UK tour. Speaking about the upcoming run, shes says:
