Dizzee Rascal has revealed more details about his forthcoming fifth studio album, which is due for release later this year.

The rapper has confirmed that the album, which is the follow-up to 2009's 'Tongue N' Cheek', will feature contributions from house producer Erick Morillo and Calvin Harris.

Speaking to The Sun about how the pair would be contributing to the album, he said: "I spoke to Calvin the other day actually. He's going to send me some beats. He's doing big things. I got in there before Rihanna. I've also got a song produced by Erick Morillo, which should be this album's 'Bonkers'."

The rapper also revealed he lives in both Miami and London now and has been working on new material with US producers. He said of this: "I live in Miami now as well as here so I go back and forth. I've been in Vegas and LA as well, where I met up with Snoop Dogg. He hooked me up with a load of producers so I've done a lot with them. They are loving dubstep over there and it's all pretty banging."

Dizzee kick-started his 2012 comeback with the release of a free mixtape last month (January 1) and later admitted that he still liked "making big pop records" and had no plans to abandon his mainstream chart success.

The rapper, who took a break from music last year, recently signed a new record deal with Universal Music, shortly after the label agreed to purchase the recorded music division of EMI.
