Today (September 22), Roots Manuva, a.k.a Rodney Smith, premiered his new single “Don’t Breathe Out” via The Guardian. The track is taken from his forthcoming album Bleeds which is due for release on October 30 via Big Dada. Smith is one of the cornerstones of UK Hip Hop, having released his debut album Brand New Second Hand back in 1999.
Bleeds ends a period of relative silence from the artist over the last four years and follows on from 2011’s 4everevolution. Smith has also enlisted the help of Four Tet, Adrian Sherwood, Switch and a young British producer called Fred. Listen below and check out the trailer for Bleeds underneath.
