Love Supreme Jazz Festival: Artist Formerly Known As Terence Trent D'Arby Will Make A One-Off 2024 Appearance In Sussex

Sananda Maitreya, the multi-million-selling star formerly known as Terence Trent D'Arby, has announced his first UK concert in over twenty years and will perform at the Love Supreme Jazz Festival in East Sussex in July. 

Maitreya's debut album Introducing The Hardline According To Terence Trent D'Arby – which featured the hit singles Sign Your Name, Wishing Well and If You Let Me Stay – spent 9 weeks at No 1 and 45 weeks in the Top 40. 

Maitreya is widely regarded as one of his generation's most exciting live performers and will appear at Love Supreme on Saturday July 6th for what will be his only UK show of 2024.

Sananda Maitreya said:

"I've invested a lot in English culture and English culture has of course given me a tremendous amount of inspiration. 

"There was the consideration that, until the UK scene was ready to fully acknowledge me and the reality that I have existed in since the mid 90s, that there was no point in me returning. 

"But the time is right and I am happy to return and I'm excited about bringing my music and my new songs to a live audience. 

"And I'm also excited about my new work The Pegasus Project : Pegasus & The Swan which will be released later on this year. 

"See you at Love Supreme, even if we have to take the last Coltrane to get there!"

Also on the bill for this summer"s Love Supreme, Europe's largest outdoor jazz festival, are 2024 breakout star Olivia Dean, who will perform her first festival headline show on the Saturday night, and 10-time Grammy-winning Chaka Khan, who is touring in celebration of a milestone 50 years in music and headlines the Sunday night.
