Brit Award winner and Mercury Prize nominee Beth Orton will return to Australia in November 2023!

Performing on stage with her full band, these will be Orton’s first live concerts down under in six years, today’s tour news following the September 2022 release of Orton’s lauded latest album, Weather Alive – out now via Partisan/Liberator.

One of the most critically acclaimed records released last year, Orton self-produced the entirety of Weather Alive from her home studio in London, laying the foundations of the songs on an upright piano installed in a shed in her garden. The New York Times hailed Orton’s “modal vocal phrases and marvelling” stories – read their extensive profile of the album here – while Pitchfork named lead single ‘Weather Alive’ a Best New Track, calling it “a slow-burning tour de force”. Across eight songs Weather Alive hosts an incredible group of collaborators, including jazz poet Alabaster dePlume, The Smile drummer Tom Skinner, multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily, and Mercury Prize nominated bassist Tom Herbert of The Invisible.

"This is as moving and real as Orton has ever been … Nestles somewhere between Talk Talk’s final years and Bill Fay’s late beauties, between Alice Coltrane’s intimate hymns and Fiona Apple’s softest moments... the musical richness only mirrors Orton’s astounding writing" – ★★★★ MOJO
"Orton’s best record in more than 20 years" – ★★★★ Classic Pop
