Tinie Tempah reveals title of second album
Rapper says he's a month away from finishing 'Demonstration'
Tinie Tempah has revealed the title of his second album, saying it will be called 'Demonstration'.
The multi-award winner, talking on Capital FM's breakfast show this morning (Thursday), said he's about a month away from finishing the follow-up to Mercury Prize-nominated debut 'Disc-Overy'.
He said: "Hopefully a couple of weeks after [it's finished] all the singles should start trickling out but I'm so excited about it. It feels so much better then when I did the first one."
Tinie, who presented One Direction with their Best British Single award at the Brits on Tuesday evening, had been working on the album in New York, but decided to return to the UK to finish the record as he was missing his friends and family.
Speaking to Radio 1's Newsbeat recently, he explained why he wanted to come back to Britain. "I had to come back home and reflect. I was in America a lot and things were great but overwhelming.
He added: "I missed my family and my friends. I was meant to write the album in New York but I literally wasn't in the right physical and mental state to do so. So I came back and it's all been worth it. It sounds incredible so far."
Tinie also revealed the record contains some "cool collaborations" and is edgier than his first effort. He said: "It's definitely based around what I've done before, if it ain't broke don't fix it like they say, but it's definitely a lot more forward thinking and is a lot more edgy, there are cooler collaborations."
In past interviews Tinie had stated he'd spoken to Coldplay's Chris Martin, Take That's Gary Barlow and Dizzee Rascal in person about working on his new album, but as yet no names have been confirmed for 'Demonstration'. He also said he would be working with producer Labrinth once again.
