Grime pioneer and Boy Better Know co-founder JME has announced his return to music after a four-year hiatus, revealing the release date for his highly-anticipated fourth studio album, Grime MC. The project is the follow-up to 2015’s critically-acclaimed Integrity>.

The younger brother to Skepta has refrained from using social media for years, using his older brother’s Instagram to share an announcement for the forthcoming project. Skepta posted a link to a YouTube video which sees JME holding a vinyl copy of the record as he writes out various dates and locations on a chalkboard.

In the background various tracks off the project can be heard, namely “Nang” featuring Skepta and “You Watch Me.” The dates listed are record shops that will see the sale of the album in limited quantities as well as album listening sessions. Earlier this Summer, JME noted that he was planning to give “real fans” the music first, showing his distaste for streaming services. He hinted that he would be releasing physical copies atop of hosting listening parties before releasing the project online.

You can check out the full video above and see the listed dates and shops, as well as tracklist, below.
