Mark Geary will release an EP on Friday 28 November to coincide with a tour of Ireland the following month.

The double A-side release features 'It Beats Me' and 'America (revisited)', re-recorded by David Odlum and with backing vocals from Gemma Hayes.

Both tracks appeared on Geary's début album, '33 1/3 Grand Street', which was released earlier this year on Independent Records.

The EP also includes previously unreleased songs 'I'm Tired' and live favourite 'Christmas Biscuits' as well as a live video of 'It Beats Me'.
