James Morrison has been announced as the second headline act who will play at the Alive music event at Delapre Park next summer.

Morrison is one of the UK’s most respected singer-songwriters.

His first two albums Undiscovered and Songs for You, Truths for Me has sold more than 4.5m copies and yielded ten singles including You give me something, Wonderful World and Broken Strings featuring Nelly Furtado.

His acclaimed third album Awakening features classic but contemporary folk-soul songs.

Morrison, who went to school in Kingsthorpe, Northampton, has sold out arena tours and gigged across the world. Born in Rugby, he said he is “looking forward to playing Delapre Park, which promises to be a special gig in the heart of the town.”

Former Brit Award winner Morrison will close the three-day Alive at Delapre Park festival with the Sunday gig.

Morrison, who will play on Sunday, July 21, will join fellow headlinder Paul Weller, who was announced earlier this month and will play on the Friday night.

Tickets at £35 (plus booking fee) go on sale at 9am on Friday, December 14, from the Royal & Derngate Theatres box office in Northampton or on 01604 624811.

There will be no transaction fee if bought in person from the box office.
