Kate Nash has announced a 22-date tour of the UK for April and May.

The 25-year-old singer/songwriter is due to release her third studio album, Girl Talk, in March.

Her tour, which starts on 4 April in Cambridge, includes dates in Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool and London.

She brought out her last record, My Best Friend Is You, in 2010 which made it to number eight on the official album chart and featured singles like Do-Wah-Doo and Kiss That Grrrl.

Her most successful track to date was 2007's Foundations from debut album Made of Bricks which made it to second spot on the chart.

Kate Nash's tour ends at London's 100 Club on 1 May.

She's also performing two warm-up gigs, on 12 February at Reading's Sub 89 and the next night at London's Sebright Arms as part of the NME Awards shows.
