Aitch has announced that his debut album ‘Close To Home’ will be out this summer, with new single called ‘1989’ dropping tomorrow.
The album is described as a “love letter to the city which shaped him, [Manchester] revealing a well of hidden depths to surprise, delight, and charm his ever-growing legion of fans,”.

“The past four years have been crazy thank you to everyone that’s been involved I can’t appreciate you enough, whether you been here from the start or not I got nothing but love,” Aitch posted on Instagram.
‘1989’ will include a sample from fellow Manchester group The Stone Roses with their hit ‘Fools Gold’.
‘Fools Gold’ was released in 1989, which explains Aitch’s choice in track title.
The Manchester rapper gave a sneak-peak to his new single earlier this week via Twitter with a video of him mouthing along to this new mash-up captioning it, "Manchester shit...who wants it?"
