Katy B has announced details of a UK tour taking place in March 2014.

The London based singer-songwriter will play a string of shows across England, including a homecoming show at Koko in Camden on 26 March.

Starting in Brighton on 25 March, the five date tour will finish in Manchester on 29 March.

The Lights On singer, 24, is expected to release her second album, Little Red, early next year.

It is the follow-up to 2011's Mercury Prize nominated debut, On A Mission.

Her latest single, 5AM, is currently number 14 in the Official UK Singles Chart.

During a session with Zane Lowe Katy B, who recently performed at 1Xtra Live, said her writing process has changed since the first album.

"There was no pressure at all (with On A Mission). It kind of didn't feel like I was signed," she said.

"This album has been much more kind of focussed, like I'm creating a piece of work now."

Tickets for all dates go on sale on Friday 15 November.

The dates of Kay B's 2014 UK tour are as follows:

Concorde 2, Brighton - 25 March

Koko, London - 26

02 Academy 2, Oxford - 27

Institute Library, Birmingham - 28
