Stiv Jakobsen announces new album and UK tour

Siv Jakobsen has announced details of her debut album ‘The Nordic Mellow’ which will be released on 25th August on the lovely Loose label (good alliteration there). Earlier this year, stand alone single Like I Used To which featured guest vocals from Andrew Davie of Bear’s Den offered a taster of the new record, and new single Shallow Digger out this week showcases the other end of her sonic spectrum – it’s a bit more brooding and raw so to speak. You can listen to it below.  The new album was produced by Matt Ingram (Laura Marling) at Urchin Studios in London.  Here’s those dates.


Wed Oct 4 – Shrewsbury, Henry Tudor House
Thu Oct 5 – Bristol, The Lantern
Fri Oct 6 – Manchester, Band on The Wall
Sat Oct 7 – Liverpool, Buyers Club
Sun Oct 8 – Leeds, Brudenell Social Club
Tue Oct 10 – Glasgow, CCA
Wed Oct 11 – Newcastle, Cluny 2
Thu Oct 12 – London, Cecil Sharp House
