Prior to her 'Simplified' tour, Katie Melua releases 'Where Does The Ocean Go?' from her sixth studio album 'Ketevan'.
Written by Katie with Mike and Luke Batt, the song is inspired by Samuel Taylor Coleridge's 'The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner'. Katie's unique and astonishing voice, with a maturity and richness that has developed over the last decade, narrates tales of love and life throughout 'Ketevan' which was released on September 16th, Katie's 29th birthday.
When 'Ketevan' entered the UK charts at number 6 Katie joined a very small group of female artists, which includes Madonna and Kate Bush, who have scored 6 consecutive UK top 10 studio albums. The album also entered the top 10 in France, Poland, Denmark, Germany, Holland and Switzerland in its first week of release.
In October Katie performed a special 10th anniversary concert at The Roundhouse in London before embarking on a European autumn tour.
In March and April 2014 Katie will return to the stage on her 'Simplified' tour that will see her performing a stripped-down set accompanied by just bass and keyboards. The tour will start in Russia on 23rd March and will take in Estonia, Lithuania, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and Britain, before ending in Spain on 19th April 2014.
