Example announces new single details
Rapper reveals title and premiere date for the first single from his new album
The rapper took to Twitter to make the announcement, posting:
**NEWS** the 1st single off my 4th album is called #SayNothing and will premiere on radio next Monday morning around 8am...— example (@example) July 25, 2012
'Say Nothing' has been produced by Dirty South, who previously worked with the rapper on the track 'Anything' from his last album. The single will feature remixes from Roska, TC, Burns, Foamo and Hardwell.
Example also revealed that 'Say Nothing' and 'Perfect Replacement' will receive their live debuts when he performs at V Festival on August 18 and 19. The rapper is currently shooting the video for 'Say Nothing' in the Spanish desert. Linking to an Instagram picture of the set's sunny location, he noted: "It's so hot here you could cook a steak on your own forehead."
'Say Nothing' will be the lead single from Example's upcoming fourth album, which he is hoping to release in October or November. Discussing the record in May, the rapper said: "It's going to be a rock album but produced electronically - every track's got huge guitar riffs. I'm pretty much singing and trying to do impressions of Pearl Jam and Foo Fighters."
Example released his last album, 'Playing In The Shadows', in September 2011. It debuted at Number One on the UK albums chart and featured the chart-topping singles 'Changed The Way You Kissed Me' and 'Stay Awake'. Example features on Calvin Harris's new single, 'We'll Be Coming Back', which is released on July 29 - scroll down to watch the video.
