Professor Green has released his first single in four years and oof – it was worth the weight
The rapper told Metro.co.uk earlier this week that he would be dropping new single Unruly ahead of the BRIT Awards on 21 February.
‘The album is going really well. There’s a song called Unruly coming out tomorrow unexpectedly – I just let that slip,’ he said.
‘The music is doing the talking for itself. It’s very very unapologetic.
‘Unruly is what it says. It’s just what came out of my mouth on the day – which was a lot.’
The track is produced by Diztortion, who’s famous for working with the likes of Wiley, Stormzy and Major Lazer.
The main theme of the song is basically about not giving a damn, and features the line ‘I’m always fucking moody’ – something many fans have related to…
The Londoner – whose last record was 2014’s Growing Up in Public told BANG Showbiz of the track: ‘Look up the dictionary definition of unruly.
‘It’s noisy. The world “Unruly” lends itself to, I am not trying to keep anyone happy.’
Green also revealed that he found a lot of the writing process for his next record challenging because he has touched on ‘dark’ and ‘hard’ experiences.
He said: ‘There are some quite dark and hard moments on the new album, no cold moments, but hard moments. There we some songs I didn’t enjoy writing very much but they are probably the ones that will resonate.’
Meanwhile, James Bay recently revealed he wants to collaborate with Green after bonding with him at the NME Awards.
The 26-year-old shared a table with the rapper at the rock ‘n’ roll ceremony at O2 Academy Brixton on Wednesday 14 February, and it seems the pair got on like a house on fire.
James said: ‘I’ve been hanging out with Professor Green. We’re sat at the same table, what a lovely bloke.’
Asked if he’d like to team up with the star – real name is Stephen Manderson – he replied: ‘You never know. I don’t know yet. I need to get back to the table to talk to him about it.’
But despite the new single, Prof Green isn’t ready to hang up his TV hat just yet.
He told Metro.co.uk: ‘If TV comes back round I’ll do it again.
‘If Ant and Dec give up their day jobs then maybe there will be room for me at ITV. Otherwise I’m planning more documentaries. That conversation is always ongoing.’
