It's been another incredible 12 months for Murs, which has seen him celebrate his fourth successive number one album and become the most successful solo artist ever to come from the X Factor.

New single Years and Years is the new album’s centre piece - an expansive, explosive, spine-tingling belter and follows the radio favourites You Don’t Know Love and Grow Up which Olly recently performed on the X Factor.

He said: “I am thrilled to play at The County Ground in Northampton.
