Stormzy drops new single 'Big For Your Boots'

Last year Stormzy opened up about what to expect from his hotly-anticipated debut album – claiming that it will represent him as an ‘aggy little shit with a bone to pick’.

“So much has already happened and I’m still on album one,” he said at the time. “Maybe I should be on my second album now but I’m not, this is where I am. Most people’s first albums, they’re not talking about touring the world and winning awards. I was meant to still be in the ends with this one. So my album is a treasure in itself because it’s coming from such an unusual position as a debut.”

The tracklist for ‘Gang Signs And Prayer’ is:

First Things First
Cold
Bad Boys ft Ghetts and J Hus
Blinded By Your Grace Part 1
Big For Your Boots
