Winner of Mercury prize and Brit awards takes break, saying her mental health has deteriorated
Singer Arlo Parks, winner of the Mercury prize and Brit awards, has cancelled a string of concerts, saying her mental health has “deteriorated to a debilitating place”.
Parks announced on social media that she had decided to scrap some of her US tour dates and fly home to London for a period of rest and recovery.
It comes days after fellow Brit award winner Sam Fender also cancelled a series of upcoming shows to look after his mental health after becoming “burnt out”.
Parks’s profile has grown exponentially since the debut of her first EP, Super Sad Generation, in April 2019.
