The 'Scream' singer is set to perform an intimate gig at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo in June.

Usher has announced plans to play a one-off intimate concert in London on the day he launches his new album 'Looking 4 Myself'.

The 'Climax' singer is set to release his seventh studio offering on 11th June, and will play a special gig at the HMV Hammersmith Apollog to celebrate the album's release.

Speaking ahead of the album's release, Usher said the record brings out the best in him as an artist and sees him processing a number of different feelings and emotions throughout the record. 

"As you grow older, you become able to articulate yourself better and know what works for you," Usher explained. "So this album is not a monochromatic thing -  certain songs were specifically intended to get certain things out, different tones and emotions, and as an artist that brought out the best in me."

The 'Without You' singer has been confirmed to headline a show for the iTunes Festival in September and is also set to take to the stage at the Capital FM Summertime Ball 2012 on 9th June at Wembley Stadium.

Usher also took to the stage at the Billboard Music Awards 2012 on Sunday (20th May) to perform his new single 'Scream'. 

Tickets for Usher's HMV Hammersmith Apollo concert in London on 11th June are due to go on sale from 9am on Friday 1st June.
