Dizzee Rascal has posted the first track from his forthcoming new album online.

The song 'H Town', which you can hear by scrolling down below, features rappers Bun-B and Trae The Truth. Produced by A-Trak, it first debuted on Dizzee's 'Dirtee TV The Mixtape Vol 2' earlier this year. The trio recently shot a video for the track in Houston. It is released on iTunes on May 1.

Dizzee said of the track: "The collaboration for this song started with Bun, I came to Houston and had a good time and it stuck with me, I was doing a mixtape at the time and I ended up writing about it and recorded it, I sent it to Bun and he got on it straight away. When I came to Atlanta to record the album I saw Trae in the studio and we decided to do the video."

The rapper has also announced that the title of his fifth album will be 'The Fifth'. It's due for release in the summer. Meanwhile, Dizzee Rascal is set to support Muse on their forthcoming summer dates starting in Coventry on May 22 before two shows at London's Emirates Stadium, home to Arsenal FC, on May 25 and 26.
