Rapper also says he’s started his second album
Speaking to NME ahead of his appearance at BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend in Carlisle tonight (May 14), the rapper, who has recently featured on tracks with Wiz Khalifa and Ellie Goulding, said he was eyeing up a series of collaborators for new material.
He said: “I really want to work with Adele, I think she’s amazing. Lykke Li as well. I love them both. I’d also like to work with The Script. I met them in Australia and we just got on like a house on fire. So that’d be cool.”
Tinie also revealed he’s started working on the follow up to his debut ‘Disc-Overy’ and that he was putting out a free mix tape for download.
He said: “I’m working on my second album. I’ve just done a mix tape called ‘Foreign Object’, which will be available on the internet – there’ll be a free download. I’m releasing my album in America on May 17 so I thought it’d be nice to put something out for free.”
