Skepta Releases New Single Bullet From A Gun

Thursday, 09 May 2019 Written by Helen Payne

Skepta has released a new single.

Bullet From a Gun is the first taste of new material from the grime MC since the 'Vicious' EP in 2017, the follow up to his Mercury Prize-winning fourth LP, 2016's 'Konnichiwa’.

The song is also the first cut from his new album, ‘Ignorance Is Bliss’, which is due for release on May 31. Self-produced along with Ragz Originale, Bullet From A Gun takes on the typical grime traits of a heavy beat and bassline, and teams them with a high pitched synth pattern and Skepta's emotive bars.

"Fuck the police, tell them eat my dust,” he raps, as well as lines about touring, his baby daughter, his dating life and relationship with his father. Check it out below.

Skepta will headline Field Day Festival on June 7 and play a secret location in Manchester on July 19 as part of a Manchester International Festival event called DYSTOPIA987. Head here for further details.

Skepta Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows

Fri June 07 2019 - LONDON Meridian Water
Fri July 19 2019 - MANCHESTER TBC Manchester
