Dizzee Rascal reveals new single 'I Don't Need A Reason' - listen
Hear the second song to be taken from rapper's upcoming album 'The Fifth'
'I Don't Need A Reason' is the second song to be taken from Dizzee Rascal's upcoming album 'The Fifth' and follows his recent collaboration with Robbie Williams, 'Goin' Crazy'. The London-born artist recently claimed that he wants to put a "different spin" on EDM with 'The Fifth'.
Speaking to NME about the sound of the record, Dizzee Rascal said: "I'd say it's more a Europop sound, the sort of synths on it, you know? I went out and made this record in Miami with no distractions, working with people like RedOne, because I wanted to have a more international sound this time, and yeah, you can hear it, definitely. Most EDM, like Tiesto and Calvin Harris, has singing on it, so I wanted to put some rap on it, give it a different spin. But it's still me."
'The Fifth' will be released later this year and features collaborations with Jessie J, will.i.am and Robbie Williams. The album also sees the rapper teaming up with Calvin Harris, Tinie Tempah, Bun B, Trae the Truth and Angel as well as songwriters Warren Okay 'Oak' Felder, Andrew 'Pop' Wansell, Jean-Baptiste Kouame and RedOne.
