Prepare for Skepta’s incoming new album, ‘Ignorance Is Bliss’
Skepta announced his new album, Ignorance Is Bliss, will drop May 31. His previous long play, Konnichiwa, was released in 2016 and won the Mercury Prize, awarded for the best album released in the UK from a British or Irish artist. In 2017, he released an EP called Vicious, which featured Lil B, Smoke Boys, A$AP Rocky, and A$AP Nast.
The grime luminary has kept details about the project on the hush, releasing the album artwork which features an image of him holding his recently born daughter. Perhaps we’ll have a glimpse of his newfound fatherhood mixed in with his normally harsh lyrical hammering. Details that are known include the album art photographed by Manu S. Pillai and there are 13 tracks set to grace all streaming services near you.
