Stormzy has dropped new song "Firebabe," the second single taken from forthcoming album This Is What I Mean. The song features vocal contributions from Sampha alongside Grammy-winning artist Jacob Collier and London soul singer Debbie. A video for the song, which finds Stormzy bathed in naturallight while home alone, can be seen below.
Speaking in a statement, Stormzy said: “Debbie, George [Moore] and I got in the studio together and it was the most beautiful moment. It was a session I’ll never forget, for the rest of my life. It was extremely special and everyone in the room understood that. We were making something that hopefully, God willing, lives forever. Something that has soul and feeling and it came from a really pure place. We took a truth and made some art from it."
"Firebabe" follows Stormzy's recent single "Hide & Seek," released last month. This Is What I Mean is due November 25. It is the U.K. artist's follow-up to his 2019 album Heavy Is The Head. Earlier this week he announced plans for his own festival. This Is What We Mean will take place in London next summer.
