Skepta has shared two new tracks titled 'Bullet From A Gun' and Greaze Mode' featuring Nafe Smallz ahead of the release of his fifth studio album, 'Ignorance Is Bliss'.
The LP, which follows his last full-length award-winning album ‘Konnichiwa’ in 2016, is set for release on May 31 the grime star's Boy Better Know imprint.
Both of the tracks showcase the two musical and lyrical attitudes that will appear on Skepta's new 13-track album. 'Bullet From A Gun', produced by both Skepta and Ragz Originale, is a focused and reflective track that shows the depth of the grime kingpin's lyricism while 'Greaze Mode' - featuring Luton vocalist Nafe Smallz - is a hard-hitting banger with a turn-up mentality.
The album artwork was photographed by Manu S. Pillai and is shot with a heat-map filter possibly teasing what’s to come in the new album.
Skepta, a new dad, can be seen in the central image holding his child which has got some people thinking much of the album will touch on his new fatherly experiences.
