After finally nailing down “three years of my life" onto a CD, Skepta's long-awaited album 'Konnichiwa' is out today.
To celebrate the launch of his 'Doin' It Again' follow-up, yesterday, Skepta debuted the album in Tokyo (because, duh) at a special Boiler Room event that saw appearances from Japanese grime MCs Kohh and Loota before unveiling another track hours before 'Konnichiwa's release. Weeks after releasing Man, Skepta's new single is a collaboration with Novelist titled Lyrics and served as the final teaser with a premiere by Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 Radio show in the early evening.
On Tuesday, Skepta announced new dates for a U.K. tour beginning next week in London, Glasgow, Birmingham, and Manchester. Venues are yet to be announced, but, presently, tickets are only available to fans who have pre-ordered 'Konnichiwa' through Skepta's website – read more here.
