The first grime album to reach number one in the UK album charts.
Stormzy’s debut Gang Signs and Prayer looks set to be released on vinyl, according to a new listing on Amazon.
A 16-track suite of street spirituals, from “punch in the face” opener ‘First Things First’ to the soaring gospel-influenced ballad ‘Blinded By Your Grace’ which returns throughout the album, Gang Signs and Prayer became the first grime album in history to reach number 1 in the UK album charts following its release in February 2017.
Gang Signs and Prayer will become the second major grime album to get a vinyl release in a matter of days following the news that Skepta’s 2016 Mercury Prize-winning Konnichiwa will be released on red vinyl this week.
