Great deals on musical instruments

James Blake has announced a new UK tour.

The Limit To Your Love hitmaker will commence the British leg of his world tour in Edinburgh on June 1st and wind up at the legendary Glastonbury festival in Somerset, south-west England on June 25th.

Along the way, the musician will take in the likes of Newcastle, Manchester, Birmingham and London, as well as crossing the borders into Scotland and Wales.

The UK leg of the tour follows dates in America, Austria, Italy and France, among other countries.

In addition, he will also play at European festivals such as Rock Werchter in Belgium, Roskilde in Denmark and Portugal's Optimus Alive bash.

James' self-titled debut album was released in February and the London-based electronic composer was a runner-up on the BBC Sound of 2011 poll.

However, the star has insisted he doesn't feel any pressure about his music career.

He recently told The Scotsman: "Pressure isn't real - it just isn't. I can't make my album any better now it's done. My attitude to everything has always been: do the most honest job you can."
