Swedish soul-pop singer and songwriter Erik Hassle today announced twelve tour dates supporting U.S label mate MØ on her upcoming North American tour this month. The tour begins in Washington, DC, mid-May and finishes in Los Angeles in June, with stops in Brooklyn, Vancouver, Chicago and Seattle among others.
Erik’s recently released “Somebody’s Party” EP has gained critical acclaim across the board, including Interview Magazine who praised his vocals as “intense and haunting.” Additional support has come from The FADER, COMPLEX Magazine, Vogue Magazine, V Magazine and PAPER. The powerful and infectious EP features guests such as Chicago hip-hop artists Vic Mensa and up-and-coming label mate Tinashe, and is an astounding collection of six tracks, offering an exciting glimpse of this young and talented artist’s abilities.
The 25-year-old boasts a number of successful singles in the U.K and European charts over the years and most recently penned the track “Can’t Remember To Forget You” for Shakira and Rihanna.
