Plan B announces full details of new album 'Ill Manors'

Kano, Labrinth and John Cooper Clarke all feature on the rapper's latest effort

Plan B has unveiled full details his new soundtrack album Ill Manors.

The rapper released his directorial debut Ill Manors on June 4 and the album, which serves as a companion piece to the film, will follow on July 23. His new single 'Lost My Way' came out on Monday (July 2) and follows the album's title track in being released as a single.

The album contains a total of 11 tracks and includes collaborations with Labrinth, Kano, Takura Tendayi and legendary poet John Cooper Clarke.

Speaking to NME previously about the film, Plan B said: "I was inexperienced and didn't have a lot of money, and I guess some people didn't like the fact I was making a film. I never went to film school, I didn't know the technical terms for films, so there was a lot of prejudice towards me."

He added: "But then there was some people that really believed in my vision and gave me all the support I needed." You can watch the trailer for 'Ill Manors' at the bottom of the page.
