Skepta hasn’t released an album since 2016 but that’s about to change. The British rapper is scheduled to drop a new LP titled Ignorance Is Bliss on May 31.
The Grime star unveiled the release date and cover artwork for his next project via Instagram on Sunday (April 28).
“NEW SKEPTA ALBUM #IGNORANCEisBLISS OUT MAY 31ST,” he wrote. “Artwork shot by @haiimmanu @FLIR thank you Metallic mgmt for bringing my ideas to Life. Pre-order the album now. Link in my bio.”
Last year, Skepta declared his next album would be titled SkLEVEL. But a few weeks ago, he said a change had been made.
“A message to say I love you all, I’ve been working hard and I’m more focused than ever,” he announced. “Changed my album title cos #SkLEVEL is a 2018 pattern. New year, new name. @slowthai album first tho.. see you soon.”
The tracklist for Skepta’s fifth studio album hasn’t been revealed at this time. Ignorance Is Bliss can be pre-ordered here.
