Tinie Tempah finishes recording second album

The follow-up to 'Disc-Overy' will be released next summer

Tinie Tempah has finished recording his second album.

The UK rapper confirmed he had finished working on the follow-up to his Number One LP ‘Disc-Overy” whilst talking to Capital FM – via Digital Spy.

He said that he hopes to release the album next summer, saying: “The album’s done and we’re gonna chill out and just enjoy Christmas. At the start of the year we’re going to start dropping stuff and then hopefully we’ll have it out in time for the summer.”

Diplo worked with Tinie Tempah on the album, collaborating after the rapper contacted the Major Lazer man personally.

Discussing their collaboration, Diplo recently told the Daily Star: “Rather than go through his management, Tinie reached out to me directly, which I really respected. We’ve been going back and forth on our tracks, but they sound in the vein of the rap stuff I’ve previously produced – hard and heavy and electronic.”

Tempah, real name Patrick Okogwu, previously revealed that his second album will be called ‘Demonstration’.

Speaking to NME in May of this year, Tempah revealed that Coldplay’s Chris Martin has been “quite an influence” on the album. He added: “[This album] is definitely a lot more progressive in the quality of the sound. I’ve been listening to Lykke Li and Lana Del Rey, the dynamics of the sound, how big and anthemic it gets.”
