Skepta announces new album 'Ignorance Is Bliss'

Having remained consistently prolific since the release of his Mercury Prize winning album 'Konnichiwa' in 2016, Skepta has now announced his plans for a new studio LP, arriving next month.

The new full-length 'Ignorance Is Bliss' is set to arrive on the 31st May, and although the tracklist has yet to be unveiled, his recent singles ‘Wish You Were Here’, ‘Neighbourhood Watch’ and ‘Pure Water’ are more than likely to appear.

The rapper is also set to perform at a number of festivals this summer, including Dour, Pohoda, and EXIT, as well as a headline performance at Field Day.
