Jai Paul has released his debut album on Bandcamp – you can stream the album below and download it here.

The self-titled album was uploaded onto the site yesterday (April 13) to no fanfare or publicity. The sixteen track album has no song titles but track seven is his cover of Jennifer Paige's 'Crush', 'Jasmine' is track nine and 'BTSTU' is track 16.

The singer/producer is signed to XL Recordings, label home of Adele, and it is currently unclear if the label approved the surprise release of the album, which was originally rumoured to be titled 'Rayners Lane'.

Not much is known about Jai Paul, who has so far kept himself out of the public eye. Having given little to no interviews so far, he has kept himself out of the media glare and this shock release of his debut album will only heighten the mystery surrounding him.

Paul broke onto the scene in 2007 with the demo release of his track 'BTSTU'. The song has since been sampled by artists such as Beyonce and Drake, earning the UK singer worldwide notoriety.
