Look who's back.

Daisy Jackson Daisy Jackson - 7th October 2022

Olly Murs is back (did he ever go away? Apparently so) with a new album and a massive UK arena tour.

The former X Factor alumni will be heading up to Manchester for a night on his 2023 tour.

Now newly-signed with EMI Records, Olly is set to release his first studio album in more than four years, with Marry Me scheduled for release on 2 December.

The first single from his seventh album is Die Of a Broken Heart.

Olly says of his new song: “It has that steel drum at the intro, which just gets in your head straight away. It has a very Gotye, ‘Somebody I Used to Know’ feel to it, with a touch of The Police – and just a coolness to it. That really excited me.”

The singer burst into the scene with a self-titled debut back in 2010, which went double-platinum, and went on to have four number one singles and four number one albums in near back-to-back succession.

Although Olly’s TV career has continued at pace – he’s been the host of ITV’s Starstruck and a judge on The Voice – he’s been off the radar of the music industry for more than four years.

He is promising to have people ‘dancing – if not proposing – in the aisles next year’ when he returns to the live touring circuit.

The 12-date tour includes a night at the O2 in London, and will be supported by Scouting For Girls.

Tickets for Olly’s 2023 UK arena tour are available via pre-sale on Wednesday 12 October for anyone who pre-orders the album, and on general sale Friday 14 October at 9am HERE.
