Stormzy's highly anticipated new album, Heavy Is The Head, marks a hugely exciting return for the multi award-winning British phenomenon and is a record which has been executively produced entirely by the musician himself; showcasing his world class lyricism and musicality alongside many of his celebrated and relatable subject matters. The album features additional vocals from some of the most exciting musicians of this generation - all of whom have been hand-picked by Stormzy including Ed Sheeran, H.E.R., Burna Boy, YEBBA, Aitch, Headie One, and Tiana Major9 with production from Fred Gibson, Fraser T Smith, T-Minus and others.
Before Stormzy released his platinum-selling No. 1 debut album, Gang Signs & Prayer in 2017, many would merely have called him one of the most promising rappers on the UK scene. Nearly three years on however, that description is utterly inadequate. A showman like no other, his remarkable ascent has been accompanied by his honest and relatable character. Known for evolving the underground musical landscape, as well as being a perennial political agitator, Stormzy is a true spokesman of black empowerment and social activism. He has become one of the UK's most inspiring cultural figures and has used his platform to highlight a plethora of social issues, including the injustice of young black children being criminalized in a biased and disproportionate justice system.
