German and UK dates announced

Four German dates were announced on the official Morten Harket website today:

Morten will be performing four concerts in Germany in early May:

May 5th – Hamburg, Laeiszhalle
May 6th – Cologne, E-Werk
May 8th – Berlin, Columbiahalle
May 9th – Offenbach, Capitol

Tickets for these shows go on sale via Eventim on Tuesday, December 17 at 9:00am.

Update Dec. 17th: A UK date has now also been announced:

Morten will be back in London at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on May 16! Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday December 20 at 9:00am via Gigs & Tours.

Concert promoter Marek Lieberberg sent out a press release in connection with the German dates, which says that Morten’s upcoming album is called Brother – the same as the first single. The press release goes on to say that the album has similarities with Wild Seed.

Incidentally, Morten used to perform a song called “Brother” live in the late 90s – as pointed out by @tTrovik on Twitter. That song, also known as “Father”, was the English version of “Lyser Når Du Drar” from Vogts Villa.

I can’t really see it being the lead single off the new album, unless it’s been heavily reworked. So this new “Brother” may be a different song using the same title.
