slowthai: Nothing Great About Britain

I have just come to the realisation that despite slowthai being one of the most exciting artists working in the UK right now and the fact that I have been bumping his music for the last few months, this is the first time he has appeared on my blog.
Not a bad place to start though, as yesterday saw the release of the video of the titular track from his forthcoming album, Nothing Great About Britain. While the title might sound anti-English – and will no doubt be labelled that way by certain media outlets – it is in fact an ode to the county that slowthai loves, but at the same time it’s the same country he has seen disintegrate in recent times thanks to toxic political agendas and divisive public figures.
The album is due for release on 17 May and you can find pre-orders for physicals, plus various bundles, over at his store.
