British grime superstar Stormzy is just about to drop his second album, Heavy Is The Head, and he's just dropped another taste of what to expect from the new record. Clearly, Stormzy never rests, as the single comes hot on the heels of Stormzy's huge tour announcement (including some Australian shows).
He's released Audacity alongside fellow British MC Headie One, with Audacity the fifth single from the album. We've heard the trio of tracks Crown, Vossi Bop and Wiley Flow earlier this year, as well as the single Own It alongside Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy. We're getting a pretty good idea of what the album is set to sound like, and we couldn't be more excited.
The track is as gritty as you'd expect from Stormzy, with Headie One matching him bar-for-bar (which is no mean feat in itself). Stormzy finishes the song with the line "When Banksy put the vest on me, felt like God was testing me", referring to his historic headlining set at Glastonbury, with the Banksy-designed stab-proof vest that Stormzy wore during the performance featuring on HITH's cover. Clearly, Stormzy is willing to challenge anyone that steps to him.
The video, which was directed by British director Taz Tron Delix, matches the tone of the track, with Stormzy walking deserted streets, looking for anyone who'd dare step to him. Check out the video below - having now heard this track, we're even more keen for Stormzy's new album!
