Skepta's new album ‘Ignorance Is Bliss’ is out next month

Skepta has revealed he's releasing a new album titled 'Ignorance Is Bliss' next month.

Not much is known about the record, save for its artwork which was included in the announcement and that it was originally named ‘SkLEVEL’.

In an Instagram post yesterday, Skepta released the album’s name before taking a moment to praise his team of managers. He thanked them “for bringing my ideas to life” before deleting all posts unrelated to his forthcoming album.

The LP is set for release on May 31 which follows his last full-length award-winning album ‘Konnichiwa’ in 2016. 'Ignorance Is Bliss' will feature 13 tracks that have not yet been named.

The album artwork was photographed by Manu S. Pillai and is shot with a heat-map filter possibly teasing what’s to come in the new album.

Skepta, a new dad, can be seen in the central image holding his child which has got some people thinking one song will touch on his new fatherly experiences.
