Loyle Carner unveils his new single ‘Stars & Shards’, which was premiered last night by Annie Mac on Radio 1 as her Hottest Record. ‘Stars & Shards’ will be released on burgeoning label AMF Records, impacting 17th June. On the back of selling out two UK tours, Carner has announced a fresh run of dates including London’s prestigious Koko.

“Loyle Carner is Britain’s most recent new hope in hip hop” – The Fader

Carner’s music is planted at an intersection between the boom-bap of East Coast hip-hop, jazz-inflected portraits of South London, and soulful, laid back poetry; there’s solid, honest and raw sentimentality running through his sound. You get the sense he leaves no door closed, as though he’s inviting the listener in to come in, sit down, have a cup of tea, confess, and work through their problems together. ‘Stars & Shards’ is about one of Carner’s friends who lost their way – it’s brimming with honesty and humble perseverance, it’s a warm bath of studiously relaxed hip-hop and soul.
