Katy B has detailed her second album 'Little Red'.
Heading back into the studio, Katy B was faced with following up a debut album which had earned widespread success and been heavily mimicked in the process.
Recruiting a heavyweight cast, the flame-haired singer broke cover this summer with new single '5AM'. The autobiographically titled album 'Little Red' is set to follow suit on February 3rd.
Sampha stops by on 'Play' while Jessie Ware supplies vocals on the duet 'Aaliyah'. In addition to this, Bristol don Joker supplies beats while George FitzGerald, Jacques Greene and more contribute beats.
"That first album had a certain innocence about it" Katy B reflected recently. "I think this album has a bit more experience. My relationships have got more serious, I’ve moved out of my parents’ house, I’m dealing with issues on my own. My friends are all going through that transition as well — those questions you ask of yourself as an adult."
