WATCH Stormzy’s Hard-Hitting New Song ‘Sounds of the Skeng’

The track previews the rapper’s next album

 

Stormzy has released a new single, “Sounds of the Skeng,” the third song to emerge from the British rapper’s upcoming album. The fast-talking track, produced by Sir Spyro, follows “Vossi Bop” and “Crown.”

The single art pays homage to The Sound of Music, but “Sounds of the Skeng” doesn’t have any of that musical whimsy. The hard-punching number follows up on Stormzy’s 2017 track “Mr. Skeng,” off his debut album Gang Signs & Prayer, drawing on some of the same references in the lyrics. On the track, the rapper spits, “Five whole years on the circuit/ Every single year I merk it/ Every single year/ I switch flows, they jerk it/ I flip more, then reverse it/ Told bro reimburse it, I just hope that it’s worth it.”

Stormzy has revealed the two young boys in his new music video are his nephews Allyas and Omari.

The video for Sounds Of The Skeng opens with the rapper lying on a sun lounger on a London rooftop, dressed in a pink Hawaiian shirt and reading a copy of a book called The Velvet Touch.

The two boys sit by his side taking notes before The Book Of Skeng falls from the top of the frame.

The video features him concealing his nephews in an oversized coat and them running alongside him in their school uniforms, as they continue to take notes.

Stormzy has been working on his follow-up to Gang Signs & Prayers, but a release date has not yet been announced. In June, he became the first rapper to headline Glastonbury.  This month, Stormzy will be part of the judging panel for this year’s Mercury Music Prize alongside Jamie Cullum, Jorja Smith, Annie Mac and Gaz Coombes.

The rapper also recently appeared on Ed Sheeran’s “Take Me Back to London,” from the singer’s album No.6 Collaborations Project. A remix of the track, also produced by Sir Spyro, went to No. 1 on the U.K. singles chart earlier this month.
