‘When Will We Land?’ marks the Edinburgh-born artist’s broadest and most diverse project yet, the 11-track project moves from deep house to jazz, from ambience to the percussive charge of afrobeat. It’s all held together by his singular sense of purpose and that trademark vivacity; deftly finessed, it’s an album that works as a form of musical autobiography. 

The new album and today’s tour announcement arrives hot on the heels of a momentous few months for Barry with stand-out DJ sets at this year’s Glastonbury, an already lauded Boiler Room performance at FLY Open Air festival, a Mahogany session and high profile shows across the world (Amnesia in Ibiza alongside Kerri Chandler, Honey Dijon and Nina Kraviz). Barry also recently performed a stand-out set at Warehouse Project ‘Boiler Room Presents’ to a packed out room alongside Overmono, DJ EZ, Casisdead and Moodymann, played Portola festival to a huge crowd, played multiple sold out headline shows and supported Ben Böhmer in New York, LA and Chicago. 

The Edinburgh-born musician caught attention with a series of releases in 2020, before signing to Ninja Tune imprint Technicolour for his sensational 2022 EP ‘More Content’ (which has amassed over 20 million streams to date) and ‘Amor Fati’ (35 million to date). To add to this Billboard named him as one of their 10 Dance Artists To Watch, while influential voices such as The Blessed Madonna and Annie Mac are huge fans. More recently, his newest single “Always Get Through To You” was Clara Amfo’s Hottest Record.
