UPDATE (15.27pm 2/8): Lekman's confirmed that the London date (plus three US shows and a Sweden date) are solo, and will be so he can roadtest new material:

"I'm sorry I haven't been very good at keeping in touch the last months. It's because I've been working endless nights trying to finish my new album. It's 99% done now! But more about that later. I just wanted to tell you that this fall I'm going to head out and do five shows to try some of the new songs before the album comes out. These will be solo shows, just me, a guitar, maybe a sampler, maybe a glass of red wine resting nonchalantly on my guitar amp. Some stories. Some songs. Maybe a beat so you can dance a little. Will I see you there?"

ORIGINAL POST:

The Swedish singer/songwriter will be playing Oslo Hackney on 21 November. He's also set to play Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York City in early November, plus Stockholm's Södra Teatern on 23 November.

Lekman played London last year as part of Visions Festival 2015, but hasn't topped a bill since supporting the release of his I Know What Love Isn't LP four years ago.

Tickets will be on sale 5 August at 10am. Grab 'em here.

Lekman may not have released a record since 2012, but he's kept busy - check out last year's ambitious Postcards project below.
