Plan B has posted his comeback single 'iLL Manors' online. Scroll down to listen to the song.

The song debuted on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show earlier this evening (February 27) and will be available for download on March 25. An album and film, also called 'iLL Manors', will be released in May.

The film, which stars Riz Ahmed, Nathalie Press and Dannielle Brent, will be released on May 4 and is set in Forest Gate in London. The plot runs over the course of a few days, with six inter-linking short stories - each represented by a different rap song – which come together at the end.

The soundtrack for iLL Manors will be released on May 7 via Atlantic Records. Speaking about the album, Plan B said: "You could call 'iLL Manors'' bassline, soul, hip-hop. The album has the lyrical depth of my first record but the musical composition is light years ahead as it's informed by everything I've learnt in the last five years - writing, producing and playing with a live band. I feel I'm better than I've ever been."

Plan B will tour the UK this summer, playing seven shows in forests across the UK. The gigs begin at Thetford Forest on June 15 and then take in five further forests before finishing up on July 7 at Delamere Forest in Cheshire.

Plan B released his second album, 'The Defamation of Strickland Banks', in 2010.
