GWENNO will embark on a co-headline tour with label-mate H. Hawkline to promote her debut solo album, Y Dydd Olaf.

GWENNO, the new project of former Pipettes frontwoman Gwenno Saunders, will release the album, which means The Last Day in English, on July 24 via Heavenly Recordings.

You can listen to one of the tracks from the album, Patriarchaeth, below.

The album is inspired by Owain Owain’s 1976 Welsh language sci-fi novel Y Dydd Olaf, about a dystopian future where the robots have taken over and are busily turning the human race into clones through the use of medication.

It is sung entirely in Welsh, apart from one song in Cornish.

GWENNO, who recently supported Gruff Rhys on his ‘American Interior’ tour, will head out on the co-headline UK tour in September, with festival dates also planned for the summer.
