What with his film of the same name causing a decent amount of hype, Plan B's newest album, Ill Manors is already causing a stir with the first track, Playing With Fire having recently been released on his YouTube channel. Now news that the album launch party is to be streamed live has hit us.
People who have already had a listen to the full album will tell you that this is very much Plan B back to his old self, Strickland Banks this is not. So anyone hoping for that kind of thing or parents that suddenly decided they liked good old Ben might want to avoid being offended and go for another option when browsing through the supermarket music aisles.
Those fans that were there at the offset and have stood the test of time are going to be in for a treat however.
Newest track, Playing With Fire can be listened to below (can anyone else imagine it as a Bond theme track?) and it will be LoveLive and YouTube that will globally stream his album launch event live on the 23rd July (next Monday), the same day that new album, Ill Manors is released.
At his launch, in a secret London location, Ben, AKA Plan B will be joined on stage by the collaborators on the album – Kano, Labrinth, John Cooper Clarke and Takura from Chase & Status. Safe to say it’s going to be pretty epic.
Plan B will play exclusive and as-yet-unheard of tracks from the new album at the launch party which you can hear if you watch the live stream, as well as a selection of his past hits.
Following the performance viewers will be able to access extra content via the LoveLive channel. This will include a director’s cut of the concert, exclusive backstage footage and interviews, and the chance to watch back each track individually, again and again, from what promises to be a spectacular performance.
