Tinashe has three headline UK shows in May, in London, Manchester and Birmingham, as part of her Joyride world tour.

Her second world tour, the multi-continent trek kicks off on February 28 in Minneapolis. The 28-date North American leg visits cities throughout the United States and Canada, with stops planned in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, Boston, Atlanta and more.

The tour then heads to Europe and the UK, and will continue to Asia and Australia later this spring.

British DJ duo Snakehips, who recently collaborated with Tinashe on the hit song “All My Friends,” are set to join the singer on some of the tour.

The singer-songwriter, dancer and producer, is quickly making a name for herself as a live performer. After releasing her 2014 critically lauded debut album, "Aquarius," Tinashe toured relentlessly, taking her live show around the globe several times over, including sold-out shows across North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and the Middle East. Tinashe spent the summer of 2015 touring arenas and amphitheatres on Nicki Minaj’s The Pinkprint Tour and ended 2015 touring stadiums and arenas in South America with Katy Perry.

Known for her intense, captivating and energetic command of the stage, RCA artist Tinashe is quickly becoming one of the most celebrated live performers today. The new tour takes its name from Tinashe’s upcoming sophomore album, "Joyride." The album is described as a result of over a year on the road, "with the energy and thrill of Tinashe's show weaved directly into the album’s in-your-face DNA."

The album is set for release "in the first quarter of 2016," on RCA Records fresh off the heels of multi-format hit single “Player” featuring Chris Brown, previously shared track “Party Favors” featuring Young Thug and the international hit “All My Friends” with Snakehips and Chance The Rapper.

The album features Tinashe’s own production work, along with collaborations with the likes of Joel Compass, Nic Nac, Max Martin, LULOU and Alex Purple, and Metro Boomin, while also reunited her with Boi-1da and Devonté Hynes.
