Jens Lekman announces DiS-sponsored May tour of UK and Ireland
Drowned in Sound are proud to announce our sponsorship of Jens Lekman’s forthcoming May tour.
The indomitable Swedish crooner will return to the UK and Ireland this spring for a series of dates, full band in tow, dotted around his already confirmed appearances at both May ATPs.

12 Nottingham Rescue Rooms
13 Newcastle the Cluny

15 Glasgow Oran Mor
18 Minehead ATP vs Explosions in the Sky

Support on all dates comes from Jaymay, apart from the pair of ATP appearances and the London show, where Bon Iver feature on the bill.
Tickets for the shows are priced between £10 and £11, and are available from Gigantic.com now.
Jens, who was most recently in the country for a series of shows late last year, will also appear in a new film about the great Arthur Russell - watch the trailer for that here.
