Titled ‘F R 32’, Wretch 32 has announced his new album due for release October 13th.
Almost a year since his last project, ‘Growing Over Life’, Wretch 32 is ready to unveil the next chapter. The new album, is rumoured to be 12 tracks over which Wretch is sure to flow with the kind of freedom and honesty he has become known for. “It was roughly this time last year that I released my last album, ‘Growing Over Life’,” he explains. “I felt like this time of year had a good energy towards me so that’s what made me want to come back now.”
For the first time, Wretch will be releasing two albums in two years, proving that history is made on a daily basis as we head into October for Black History Month. Infinitely quotable, ‘FR32’ promises fresh ideas from Wretch, with ‘His & Hers (perspectives)’ already being billed as ‘playing like the war of the roses with bloodier thorns’. Elsewhere, ‘Power’ appears to be the track most stacked lyrically.
Having already sampled one of the club vibes from the LP in the shape of ‘Whistle‘, it seems ‘FR32’ has been crafted from a wide spectrum. By turns confessional, aspirational and party minded, features on the album include Kojo Funds, Yxng Bane, Donae’O, Kojey Radical, Avelino, J. Warner, Jahlani and Loick Essien.
