This came after the singer released her new track 'Wish You Were Dead' on Jan. 12.

Tickets will be available for purchase at this link starting on Friday, Jan. 19 at 10 a.m. GMT.

Between those two European trips, Young will also be touring the U.S. and Canada. She'll start in Atlanta on March 17 and close out the trip with a double-header in Los Angeles on April 6 and 7. Tickets can be purchased through the links on Young's website.

The new tour dates come just three days after Young released her new single "Wish You Were Dead." The jazzy, guitar-forward indie pop track is defined by its painfully honest lyrics about a failed romance.

"It’s a song to help me process an abusive and at times toxic relationship I experienced," Young said in a post on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter. "Even though at times i felt trapped, it’s about loving a person regardless of the fact they are hurting you."

Fans were loving the track in the comment section below the music video posted to YouTube.

"So in love with your singing and the groove and the way you say your message!" one said. "Lola Young is one to watch out for - she never misses, every song is a hit and this is no exception," said another.

'It’s a song to help me process an abusive and at times toxic relationship I experienced,' Young said of the new song.

So far, the singer's biggest hit has been 2023's "Conceited," a bouncy pop song that highlights Young's soulful, sultry lyrics.

"I didn’t pop out the womb like Beyoncé," the singer told Rolling Stone U.K. "I had to train massively."

The profile came after the musician was nominated for the Rising Star award at the BRIT Awards in 2022.

Young comes from a musical family. Her dad was a professional bass player and her mom was a prolific consumer who forced her daughter to take piano, guitar and voice lessons starting at age 6.
