Stormzy has dropped a brand new song.
The promised ‘Crown’ is streaming now, ahead of a Pyramid Stage-topping slot at Glastonbury next week (28th June).
Produced by MJ Cole and Jimmy Napes, who co-wrote the track with Stormzy, it also features vocals from seven-piece choir LJ Singers.
“Where words fail, music speaks.” Stormzy explains. “I’ve been struggling to find words to describe how much this song means to me… struggling to explain exactly why I felt the needed to say what I’ve said on the record… and can’t quite summarise the journey of emotions the song takes me on when I listen back to it. I’m very proud of myself for making this song and I can’t wait for you all to hear it. Nothing but love and respect for my brother Jimmy Napes a world class phenomenal talent and MJ Cole the genius and legend – an honour and a pleasure to work with you both my brothers. We’ve created something very special and close to my heart.”
‘Crown’ follows up on the chart-topping ‘Vossi Bop’, and previews a forthcoming second album. Stormzy’s debut, ‘Gang Signs & Prayer’, hit the top spot when it was released back in 2017.
