Bob Vylan have announced a brand-new album, ‘Humble As The Sun’.
The MOBO Award-winning duo will be releasing their new project on April 05.
It will mark the follow-up to their highly acclaimed ‘Bob Vylan Presents the Price of Life’ LP, which arrived in April last year.
Today’s news has been marked by the release of the brilliantly observational new track ‘He’s A Man’, which follows their recent motivational ‘Dream Big’ single.
Have a listen to ‘He’s A Man’ via its equally astute video that you can watch below.
Discussing the new record, and some of the themes which are evident in their latest single, Bob Vylan have explained:
“This album is for the underdogs, the ones who come out swinging and those who refuse to be defeated in the face of injustice, and aims to remind listeners that anger is a fire that can be harnessed and put to use.
“The album creation started from a conversation with the sun, which is, after all, a big ball of fire that sustains life.
“From masculinity to myths about the G Spot, the themes and topics explored on ‘Humble As The Sun’ make for an often humorously empowering celebration of the people’s ability to endure, overcome and bring about change.”
The record is set to build on the pair’s intoxicating blend of punk, drum n’ bass, grime, rock and more, with even more layered lyrics.
