The album is set to feature Aitch, Burna Boy, Ed Sheeran, Headie One, H.E.R., Tiana Major9, and YEBBA with production from Fred Gibson, Fraser T Smith, T-Minus and many others. It’s Stormzy’s most creative and largest project to date, with four of the sixteen tracks already released.
His hit “Own It” featuring Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy leads the album’s pre-success, and has created much fanfare around the upcoming release. The multi-award-winning UK rapper will be heading up the UK with a huge list of arena dates, and will be continuing the H.I.T.H. World Tour in North America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Africa and throughout Europe.
The tour follows on from Stormzy’s impressive year of success, which included the Croydon-born MC becoming the first British rapper to ever headline Glastonbury. You can find the dates and arenas for the H.I.T.H. World Tour below.
