The Croydon MC is readying the release of the follow-up to his acclaimed 2017 debut ‘Gang Signs & Prayer’, and he’s already released three singles from his upcoming second album: the chart-topping ‘Vossi Bop’, ‘Crown’ and the brand new Sir Spyro-produced ‘Sounds of the Skeng’.
Stormy has now unveiled a mind-bending set of visuals to accompany his latest single. Directed by Henry Scholfield – who also directed the visual for ‘Vossi Bop’ – the video sees the MC educating his two nephews, Allyas and Omari, as he takes them on an adventure through London. The video also sees cameos from Mist and the track’s producer, Sir Spyro.
Watch the video for ‘Sounds of Skeng’ below:
This is the second time in recent weeks that Stormzy and Sir Spyro have collaborated, with the latter’s remix of Stormzy and Ed Sheeran’s ‘Take Me Back To London’ helping the track hold onto the number one spot in the UK singles charts last week.
A release date for Stormzy’s upcoming second album has yet to be announced.
Later this month, Stormzy will sit on the judging panel for this year’s Mercury Music Prize. He’ll be joined on the 2019 panel by the likes of Jorja Smith, Annie Mac and Gaz Coombes.
Last month, Noel Gallagher praised Stormzy’s Glastonbury headline set as he remarked that it was “a great thing” that a grime artist had been given the opportunity to headline the festival’s Pyramid Stage.
