Folk singer Aldous Harding plans to debut new material during her upcoming New Zealand tour.

Disarmingly versatile with a wicked sense of humour, the Christchurch-bred, Australian-based artist released her self-titled debut to critical acclaim in 2014, but is using her four-date March tour to showcase songs from her as-yet untitled new album.

Harding will play dates at Gustav's in Christchurch on March 3, Leigh Sawmill on March 4, Wellington's Meow on March 5 and Auckland's Whammy Bar on March 6. Tickets are on sale today through Under the Radar.

Meanwhile, Kiwi R&B fans will get a chance to see rising star Tinashe perform in May.

The American singer performed at Splore in 2015, and will headline her own show at Auckland's Powerstation on May 20. Tickets are on sale through Ticketmaster from January 18.

She released her first album Aquarius in 2014, gaining fans in high places, such as Drake, Kanye West and A$AP Rocky, and she plans to release the follow-up, Joyride, later this year.
