Off the back of recent singles ‘Atlantis’ and ‘Away From Here, the Mer­cury Prize-win­ning Brit­ish rap­per Speech Debelle reveals new single ‘Come Your Way’, a smooth and soul­ful slice of altern­at­ive hip-hop and Ances­tral Rap.

Along­side the single, Speech Debelle reveals her new album ‘Sunday Din­ner on a Monday’ which will be released on 9 June 2023. 

Of the new single, Speech says: “Come Your Way is about love and for­give­ness, which I’m still learn­ing. I’m also try­ing with myself and believe it can be a revolu­tion­ary act.”

Cel­eb­rated for her abil­ity to artic­u­late a vul­ner­able hon­esty in con­trast to her husky tones, Speech gives some hints on what to expect from her highly-anti­cip­ated fourth album, and, unsur­pris­ingly, the self-con­fessed food-lov­er (a semi-final­ist on Celebrity Mas­ter­chef, cook­book writer, and pod­caster) has been influ­enced by the con­nec­tion, com­fort and cul­ture that food allows us to explore. The South Lon­don lyr­i­cist says of the title:  “On a Monday, the Sunday din­ner just tastes sweeter; everything has time to mar­in­ate and settle.” 

Fea­tur­ing the singles ‘Come Your Way’, ‘101010’, ‘Atlantis’ and ‘Away from Here’, ‘Sunday Din­ner On A Monday’ exam­ines fam­ily, friends, lin­eage, and ances­tral DNA through the lens of afro-futur­ism.

“It’s about how we ima­gine and then cre­ate our own futures”, says Speech. “The album is about our jour­ney through life as we learn from exper­i­ences that expand our senses. We learn intern­al man­age­ment and get closer to ease. Some of us even become nour­ished, like a good meal. This is THAT album.”

‘Sunday Din­ner On A Monday’ has been mixed and mastered by Grammy-nom­in­ated and MOBO award-win­ning mix­er and engin­eer Clin­ton McCreery (Enny, Kofi Stone, Manik MC), with writ­ing and pro­duc­tion from Skrip­ture (, Gregory Port­er, Base­ment Jaxx), and col­lab­or­a­tions with Dem Drums, Jamaic­an pro­duc­tion team Island Wav, Kensaye, and Mark Cake. It includes fea­tures from Eng­lish con­tem­por­ary pian­ist and com­poser Neil Cow­ley (Adele, Emeli Sande, Mari­bou State), Miss Baby Sol, Dylema, Alye­sha Lei and Ruth Sax
