Rapper says he wants to 'kick back' for a while

Dizzee Rascal has warned fans that he’s not going to release a new album until “at least” next year.

The rapper released his fourth album ‘Tongue N’ Cheek’ in 2009, but has told the Daily Star that he is keeping away from the studio for a good while yet to give himself a break.

“There won’t be a new album from me for a while, until at least next year,” he said. “I hope that doesn’t upset fans who wanted to hear something from me by the end of 2011. But it feels like I’ve released albums almost back-to-back since [2003 debut] ‘Boy In Da Corner’.”

He added: “I want to live life for a bit, kick back, see things, do other things and recharge my batteries. I’m always writing lyrics but as for recording it, that’s on the back burner for now.”
