Stormzy has released another new track on the eve of the release of second album Heavy is the Head. ‘Audacity’ is a collaboration with Headie One and comes after the rapper announced a 2020 world tour. The release has been backed with a gritty supporting visual directed by Taz Tron Delix. The song references the Banksy-designed Union Jack stab vest Stormzy wore during his Glastonbury headline performance, with the BRIT-winning star rapping “When Banksy put the vest on me, felt like God was testing me”.
Heavy is the Head includes recent singles ‘Vossi Bop’, ‘Crown’, ‘Wiley Flow’ and ‘Own It’ and is one of the year’s most hotly-anticipated records. His H.I.T.H World Tour kicks off in Dubai in February and includes a performance in his homeland of Ghana as well as three nights at London’s O2 Arena. Also set to appear on the new album are Aitch, Burna Boy, Ed Sheeran, H.E.R., Tiana Major9 and YEBBA. Of the album’s sixteen tracks, eleven remain unheard. Heavy is the Head drops at midnight.
