Stormzy has confirmed his third album is on the way.
The announcement was made during the first night of his ‘Heavy Is The Head’ UK and Ireland tour in Cardiff last night, displaying a video clip made up of candid studio snippets of the journey he took to recording the forthcoming project.
The video concluded with confirmation that the as-yet-untitled third full-length will arrive later this year, and is available to pre-order now.
A press release explains it’s “obtainable first for those attending the UK leg of his ‘Heavy Is The Head’ tour; A personal gesture of gratitude to his loyal and supportive fans who have waited almost two years for the UK shows.”
That means fans at shows can pre-order the CD format of the album via merch stores at the venue. In doing so, they’ll get a QR coded lanyard, and the option to purchase a limited edition t-shirt.
