Ahead of his third album, Keaton Henson comes to the London PalladiumKeaton Henson’s debut album, ‘Dear…’, was released quietly in late 2010, in a limited edition run, hand-made by Keaton. Here were simple, tender songs, stripped to the marrow, and written without the desire to be heard…though they sold out almost immediately.
Fast forward to September 2011 and BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe is threatening to play ‘You Don’t Know How Lucky You Are’ twice in a row, triggering a frenzy of investigations into Keaton’s identity. Amid a growing audience and a wealth of critical acclaim, Keaton chose not to perform or promote his record in a conventional manner – he was simply compelled to write the next album.
Since then, Keaton has soared on a constant upwards trajectory. He'll be coming to the London Palladium for a special gig ahead of the release of third studio album, following up on the critically-acclaimed Birthdays. If tender, introspective, emotional and incredibly beautiful music is what you're into, this one's for you.
Doors open: 7pm.
