UK-based trio London Grammar – Hannah Reid, Dot Major and Dan Rothman – has announced the release of its highly anticipated debut album. If You Wait will be available digitally in the US on September 10 via Columbia Records. The album features 11 tracks (see tracklisting below) including the recently released Strong, which is gaining strong radio support in the UK and lighting up the blogosphere. Pitchfork praised the song, noting “Reid’s voice washes over you, clean and perfectly,” while London’s Sunday Times commended its “killer melodies magicked into greatness by Reid’s soulful, yearning vocals.”

The album is a result of 18 painstaking months spent writing and recording. Heavily involved in every decision made on If You Wait, the band handpicked their team, co-producing the album with Tim Bran (The Verve, Richard Ashcroft, La Roux) and Roy Kerr AKA The Freelance Hellraiser. Roc Nation’s KD (Outkast, Beyoncé, Jay-Z) was drafted to mix the album, with Grammy-winning Tom Coyne (Adele’s 21) joining them to master.

London Grammar will spend the summer touring internationally before heading to the US and Canada for a number of dates in September and October. Kicking off September 25 at Los Angeles’ Troubadour, the tour will see London Grammar crossing North America with stops in cities including San Francisco, Chicago, Toronto and New York before ending in Boston on October 10 (see full itinerary below). Tickets will go on sale beginning Friday, August 9. For additional information on the tour please visit .

Since introducing itself with near anonymous posts of two songs (Hey Now and Metal & Dust) late last year, London Grammar quickly captured the interest and, more importantly, the imagination of music fans across the UK and beyond. The tracks catapulted the band straight into the spotlight, with music critics and fans eager to see what they did next. The trio released the acclaimed Metal & Dust EP in June, sold out two London dates, played with The xx at their Night + Day festival and secured slots at nearly all of the UK’s major summer festivals – including Glastonbury, Bestival and Festival Number 6 – before confirming their own UK headline tour set for this October, which has already sold out the first London date with a second now announced.
