Stormzy announces new album, Heavy Is The Head



With cameos including Headie One, Ed Sheeran, Tiana Major9, and Burna Boy.

Stormzy is releasing a new album called Heavy Is The Head, this December via Hashtag Merky Music Limited / Atlantic Records UK.

The title takes its name from Stormzy’s ‘Crown’ song lyrics – “Heavy Is The Head / That Wears The Crown”, which itself is paired from a Shakespeare quote.

The 16-track LP features ‘Crown’ alongside recent singles ‘Vossi Bop’ and ‘Wiley Flow’, as well as guest appearances by Tiana Major9, H.E.R., Ed Sheeran, Aitch, Burna Boy, Yebba, and Headie One.

H.I.T.H. follows Stormzy’s debut LP Gang Signs and Prayer – one of our favourite albums of 2017.
