Fresh off the back of a massive UK headline tour as well as a show-stopping performance as one of this year’s most talked about sets at Glastonbury, Dave releases the long-awaited video for single ‘Location’, taken from his No.1 selling-album Psychodrama. Having amassed almost 100m streams, the breezy Jae5-produced track features an infectiously melodic hook from Nigerian superstar Burna Boy and previously peaked at No.6 in the UK Singles Chart on release. A strong contender for this year’s “song of the summer” and having already almost reached platinum status, ‘Location’ was filmed at this year’s #Merkyfest by Kaylum Dennis and Dave himself and features cameos from some of Britain’s most exciting artists.
Widely considered the most seminal British album of recent times, Dave released ‘Psychodrama’ at the beginning of March to universal acclaim. Described by The Guardian as “the boldest and best British rap album in a generation” and “the most astonishing combination of insightful social commentary and exceptional musical talent” by British Vogue, the album instantly debuted at No.1 in the Official Charts UK Album Chart on release, breaking records for the biggest first week streams for a debut British album ever. Having recently been certified Gold, ‘Psychodrama’ has cemented both its reputation as a modern classic and Dave as one of the most important artists our time.
Recorded in just over a year, ‘Psychodrama’ is an intricate, complex and striking 11-track collection that encapsulates everything special and unique about the prodigal rapper. With only a handful of features, the album is an unflinchingly profound piece of art that features production from frequent collaborator Fraser T Smith as well as Jae5, 169, TSB, IO, 1Mind and newcomer Kyle Evans.
