Produced by Blue May and Jodi Milliner, Hoodies All Summer is the sixth studio album from Kano, and his first release since 2016’s acclaimed Mercury-nominated ‘Made In The Manor’.
The first two tracks from the 10-track album dropped last Thursday with a powerful 17 minute double video titled ‘Trouble’ directed by Aneil Karia, based on a concept by Kano.
The 10-track album sees Kano explore a more minimal – yet still uniquely British – sound which brings his lyrical prowess to the fore. The multi-layered elements of the record embrace a diverse instrumentation, as well as the broader strokes of hip hop and dancehall, and features appearances from Kojo Funds, Popcaan, Lil Silva, D Double E and Ghetts.
Hoodies All Summer will be available on CD, double vinyl and digital download. Pre order here.
