Plan B unveils video for 'Playing With Fire' – watch

Track is the latest to be taken from his Mercury-nominated album 'Ill Manors'

Plan B has unveiled his new video for 'Playing With Fire' – watch it above.

The track is the latest single to be taken from his Mercury Music Prize-nominated third album 'Ill Manors', and includes clips from his film of the same name. It will be released on December 3 and features vocals from Labrinth, who will support Plan B on his forthcoming UK tour along with Rudimental.

Last week, the singer and rapper revealed that he was £40,000 in debt before his second album 'The Defamation of Strickland Banks' came out.

"I didn't start making any money from live shows until about two years ago," he said. "I was 40 grand in debt before Strickland Banks come out. So the first Strickland Banks tour I did I was in debt."

Plan B's second LP, 'The Defamation of Strickland Banks' was released in 2010, following on from his 2006 debut 'Who Needs Actions When You Got Words'. It has sold over a million copies to date.

He also spoke about his charity, Each One Teach One, which will help teenagers from east London break into the music industry. "Kids out there need to understand it's hard work," he said. "You can't just write a song, shoot some video and think you've made it. The reality is very different to how people see it. It took us years to feel like we were actually getting somewhere…The best get rich scheme is probably the lottery."

Plan B will play:

Newcastle Metro Radio Arena (February 1)
Manchester Arena (2)
Cardiff Motorpoint Arena (4)
Nottingham Capital FM Arena (5)
Bournemouth International Centre (7)
Birmingham LG Arena (8)
London O2 Arena (9)
