Jamie xx has announced that he will take his hotly anticipated debut album In Color on tour across Europe, America and Russia. In Color will be released by record label Young Turks on June 2, and on June 5, the tour will kick off with one date in London before heading to America and returning for three UK dates in October.

Taking in New York's Terminal 5, Amsterdam's Paradiso and London's O2 Brixton Academy, the In Color tour includes some of Jamie's biggest solo shows to date. Having exploded onto the music scene with The xx in 2009, Jamie has made a name for himself with remixes for Adele, Radiohead and Florence and the Machine, and producing records for Drake and Alicia Keys, as well as his pioneering reworking of Gil Scott-Heron's final studio album, I'm New Here.

To coincide with the tour announcement, an epic video for album opener Gosh has also just dropped. Directed by Erik Wernquist, the outer-space music video includes photography from a NASA Scientific Visualisation Studio.

Tickets go on general sale on Friday, May 1 with a fan mailing list presale on Wednesday, April 29.
