RELEASED Ministry of Sound/Levels Recordings

‘Blackout’ is the first single to be released from Wretch 32’s forthcoming third studio album. ,

The track was produced by emerging talent Knox Brown who hails from Birmingham and created the record in his bedroom studio.

Well-known for supporting new British talent, Wretch 32 was the first British grime artist to sample a peer when he used Kano’s ‘P’s and Q’s’ for his club track ‘Pop?’ earlier this year.

True to form, Wretch has scouted hot up-and-coming London-based singer Shakka to feature on ‘Blackout’; his effortless resounding vocal melts over the samba drum rhythms and velvety basslines. Shakka has been a regular performer up and down the country for the past few years and Wretch has always kept a keen eye on his progress.
Laced with Wretch’s signature flow and discerning rhymes, ‘Blackout’ pays homage to soaring tribal vocal sounds, capturing a laid-back carnival atmosphere this perfectly sculpted track has the multi-layered depth of Wretch’s future-classic sound.
The record demonstrates his willingness to try new things and his overall growth as an artist.
In 2011, Wretch 32 released his gold-certified LP ‘Black And White’ which amassed over one million record sales and had three top 5 singles including the gritty ‘Traktor’ and ‘Unorthodox ft. Example’.
Crowned ‘MC of the year’ by MTV for two years in a row and as one of the focal artists for the 2012 Olympic Games, Wretch 32 has evolved his style into a seriously unique sound; chilled melodies, trademark bars and soaring choruses.
Wretch 32’s third studio album will be released in August. Blackout features remixes from T Williams, Bobby Tank, Petite Noir and Will And Bill…coming soon!!!
