Loyle Carner has released his new single, ‘Georgetown’.

The Madlib-produced track follows on from Loyle’s recent single ‘Hate’, and his Top 3 second album ‘Not Waving, But Drowning’, released back in 2019.

It both opens and closes with a sample of the poem ‘Half-caste’ performed and written by Guyanese poet John Agard, as Loyle explains.

“John Agard’s poem ‘Half-caste’ had a heavy impact on me. To see someone who was older, that looked like me, sharing a reflection of a similar lived experience made me feel comfortable/proud to not fit in. It kinda gave me the permission to finally write explicitly about being mixed. There’s so much beauty in the gaps in-between, and in some ways this song touches on that. For me, it’s about finding this inner confidence through understanding of self, and spending time back home. It is a representation of finally feeling like one whole person instead of two halves. Also another piece of the MADloyle puzzle. More on the hard drive.”
