Plan B will return to his controversial rap roots on his forthcoming third album 'The Ballad Of Belmarsh'.

The singer said the follow-up to his 2010 album 'The Defamation Of Strickland Banks' will be more like his 2006 debut 'Who Needs Action When You Got Words', despite the fact the record will continue the storyline of a fictional soul singer.

The singer also said the album is likely to switch a lot of people off. "My first record was the kind of record that, when your parents went past, they'd go 'Turn that off, give it to me, it's going in the bin!'"


"But with the second, the same parents were like, 'What a talented guy'. [With the third album] those parents are going to go straight back to, 'Turn that shit off'," he added.

"It's an underground hip-hop album about Strickland Banks being banged up in Belmarsh," he told The Daily Mirror. "I won't be him singing any more, I'll be rapping about him, commenting on the story."

'The Ballad Of Belmarsh' is due for release later this year.
