Glasgow Times:

The announcement comes after the release of the Irish pop star's newest single, Chess. 

Speaking about the track, LYRA said: “My dad taught me how to play chess when I was younger.

"It was a massive mind game and when I grew up it reminded me about a lot of obstacles I had to get through in order to find out who I am, I was constantly being asked 'what box do you fit in' and I really struggled with that.

"We are not built for boxes and life isn’t about ticking off lists. The day I said 'enough is enough, I’m not your pawn anymore' is the day I created Chess."
