Rapper Loyle Carner announces new album Not Waving, But Drowning



Featuring Sampha, Jorja Smith, Kiko Bun and Tom Misch.

London MC Loyle Carner is releasing a new album called Not Waving, But Drowning this April via Virgin EMI.

Not Waving, But Drowning sees Carner mix his casual drawl atop soul, jazz and downtempo influences.

Its 15 tracks include recent singles ‘Loose Ends’, ‘Ottolenghi’ and ‘You Don’t Know’ alongside 12 previously unreleased tunes – with cameos from Sampha, Jorja Smith, Tom Misch, Rebel Kleff & Kiko Bun, Jordan Rakei, as well as his mum Jean Coyle-Larner.

The album follows Carner’s debut Yesterday’s Gone – one of our favourite records of 2017.

A poetry book with lyrics from the album alongside a selection of poems by Carner and friends will also be available.
