Ben Howard has announced a special live-streamed show for next month – see the details below.

The London singer-songwriter is set to release his fourth album ‘Collections From The Whiteout’ next Friday (March 26) via Island.

Today (March 16), Howard has revealed details of a “global transmission” from Goonhilly Earth Station on Cornwall’s Lizard Peninsula.


Marking his first UK performance since 2019’s four-night billing at Brixton Academy, the musician will play new tracks live for the first time from the unique setting.

Fans will be able to tune in at 8pm GMT on Thursday, April 8. Tickets to the virtual event go on general sale at 9am GMT this Friday (March 19).

Last month, the singer announced two new shows at London’s Royal Festival Hall for September 18 and 19. Both dates have now sold out.


‘Collections From The Whiteout’, meanwhile, has been previewed with four tracks: ‘What A Day’, ‘Crowhurst’s Meme’, ‘Far Out’ and ‘Follies Fixture’.

Ben Howard co-produced the record – described as his “most fully realised to date” – alongside The National‘s Aaron Dessner, who last year helmed Taylor Swift‘s surprise albums ‘Folklore’ and ‘Evermore’.
