Joshua Radin biggest UK date. Already a star in the States, Joshua Radin is riding the crest of a recent rush of success that has included his ‘Simple Times’ album break into the Top 10, while his single ‘I’d Rather Be With You’ received 10,000 plays at radio and reached #2 on the airplay chart. His recent sold-out UK tour emphasised his growing popularity in the live arena and climaxed with a memorable Shepherd’s Bush Empire date that was attended by Zach Braff and Kevin Spacey. The next step in Radin’s rise to the top comes with the confirmation of his biggest tour to date. The shows include his biggest gig to date at London’s Roundhouse and are preceded by a diverse selection of summer festival dates. To coincide with his festival shows, Radin will also release the new single ‘Brand New Day’ on July 12th on 14th Floor Records. Produced by Jeremy Wheatley (Gabriella Cimli, Corinne Bailey Rae, Seth Lakeman), ‘Brand New Day’ captures Radin’s ability to create songs that are as uplifting as they are immediately captivating.
