Angel Haze to unveil lead single from debut album next week

The rapper's debut album 'Dirty Gold' is due for release in early 2014

Angel Haze has announced that she will unveil her new single ‘Echelon (Find My Way)’ next week.

The track is the lead single from her forthcoming debut album ‘Dirty Gold’, which is due to be released in early 2014. The album features production from Greg Kurstin (Lily Allen, Tegan and Sara) and Marcus Dravs (Coldplay, Mumford and Sons) and includes a track written by Australian singer-songwriter Sia, who has penned recent hits for Rihanna and Rita Ora.

Angel Haze used Twitter to share the news with fans, revealing that the track will premiere when she appears on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show next Tuesday evening (August 27).

In the meantime, Angel Haze will deliver a set on the BBC Radio 1Xtra Stage at Leeds Festival tonight (August 23) and at Reading Festival on Sunday (August 25). She’ll then play a headline show at London’s Birthdays on September 5 before her appearance at Bestival the following weekend.

Earlier this summer, Angel Haze joined forces with Iggy Azalea to call for “no more bitching” between female rappers. The pair got together to perform a cover of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s ‘Otis’ at Haze’s London show on May 7. “No more pitting your favourite female rappers against each other,” said Haze, who was recently embroiled in a Twitter battle with ‘212’ star Azealia Banks. “We are the future of rap.” “Angel’s always going to have a friend in me,” added Iggy Azalea. “I support her. She’s a fucking star. She’s the future.”
