The string of shows will begin at Bournemouth's Old Firestation on November 7 and finish at Birmingham's O2 Academy2 on November 15.

Colton will release his new album through PledgeMusic and fans who purchase the set will have access to VIP tickets.

"I've hidden away - I didn't want to go into it straight away because I wanted to change some things," Colton told Digital Spy about his time following The X Factor.

"I wasn't sure what type of music I wanted to do. So we took a long time in LA working with people there to make a specific sound.

"I didn't want it to be a reincarnation of someone else's. So we took the time to make my own sound and I'm so happy with it."

An O2 pre-sale will begin on May 15, while general release will take place on May 17.

The dates for Craig Colton's UK headline tour are as follows:

November 7 - Bournemouth, Old Firestation
November 8 - London, O2 Academy Islington
November 10 - Leicester, O2 Academy2
November 11 - Liverpool O2 Academy2
November 12 - Glasgow O2 ABC2
November 14 - Sheffield O2 Academy2
November 15 - Birmingham O2 Academy2
