LA-based singer and songwriter Sam Burton has shared the new song and video for I Don’t Blame You as he announces details of a UK tour.

The artist will headline at Manchester’s Gullivers during his run of UK shows.

The Manchester gig is one of three headline dates which come after his appearance at End Of The Road Festival.

I Don’t Blame You features on Sam Burton’s upcoming album Dear Departed (out 14 July).

The track is one which hit home with Sam Burton.  As he explained, “This song was one that stuck out to me when I was writing the songs for this record. I felt like I found a hypnotic rhythm that transported me and it felt inspired by the landscape that I was staying in. I started to see imagery in my mind and I tried to capture the spirit of it. This song brings me back to that place in Northern California and makes me see the forest and the rivers. I think it’s so important for a writer to have an inner world they can go back to to reconnect with themselves and this song revealed that place to me.”

10-track Dear Departed was produced by Jonathan Wilson and recorded at his Topanga Canyon studio.  The album includes the previously released Long Way Around and Maria.
