Additionally, Larsson has confirmed that she’ll be heading out on a UK and European tour next year in support of ‘Venus’. The run of dates includes a performance at the Roundhouse in Camden Town, London.

The singer-songwriter will then play an outdoor gig at Fairview Park in Dublin on June 21.

Tickets go on sale at 10am GMT next Friday (November 3) – you’ll be able to buy yours here. Alternatively, fans can access a pre-sale by pre-ordering Larsson’s new album via her official website before 3pm GMT next Tuesday (October 31).

Zara Larsson’s 2024 UK and Ireland tour dates are as follows:

16 – Manchester Academy, Manchester 
17 – O2 Academy, Glasgow
18 – O2 Academy, Birmingham 
21 – Roundhouse, London 

21 – Fairview Park, Dublin 

Speaking to NME over the summer, Larsson explained that her then-untitled fourth record would see her “do a little bit of this and a little bit of that” musically. “It’s very me to do that!” she added.

As for how ‘Venus’ compares to ‘Poster Girl’, Larsson told NME: “This [album] is still pop, but it has an element of stillness to it as well. There’s definitely songs on there that are very raw and [that] feel a bit naked.

“And this album is a bit more dynamic – there’s songs with a hard-hitting bass, like club bangers, but also songs that are just piano and a vocal track. So I think it’s a little bit more daring in not being one thing, which is honestly very me.”

She went on to describe the forthcoming LP as “personal and relatable”, adding: “I wouldn’t say it’s a concept album at all.”
