Days after announcing his forthcoming Ignorance Is Bliss album, Skepta has revealed the first two tracks from the compilation. “Greaze Mode” with Nafe Smallz and “Bullet From A Gun” hit the airwaves on May 9, giving fans a taste of what’s to come from the UK artist’s fifth studio album.
“The internet is making everything and everyone politically correct but that takes away the artistry,” Skepta noted in a release. “Ignorance Is Bliss deals with the yin yang of life. True Skepta, saying it exactly how it is.”
The two songs show the vast range fans can expect from the storied artist’s upcoming LP. “Greaze Mode” brings an upbeat, party-type atmosphere with vocalist Nafe Smallz. “Bullet From A Fun,” on the other hand, is a more contemplative number, looking inward with a slower tempo and powerful lyrics.
Ignorance Is Bliss is out May 31 Skepta’s Boy Better Know label.
