Skepta’s Konnichiwa gets long-awaited vinyl release



At last.

Skepta’s Mercury Prize winning album Konnichiwa is set for its first vinyl release via Boy Better Know.

Originally released in May 2016 after a series of delays, the album went on to win the Mercury Prize, the first time a grime artist has won the award since Dizzee Rascal’s Boy In Da Corner in 2003.

Crowning Skepta as undisputed king of grime, Konnichiwa features collaborations with his brother JME, Novelist, Wiley and Pharrell Williams an includes massive singles ‘Shutdown’, ‘It Ain’t Safe’ and ‘Man’.

During an interview while out record shopping in 2015, Skepta confirmed that his new album would get a vinyl release.

It drops this week on double red vinyl and is available to pre-order here.
