UK grime king Skepta has just announced his new album Ignorance Is Bliss will be arriving next month.

Shared only a few moments ago via his personal Instagram account, the artist posted the album’s cover shot by @haiimmanu which features various thermographic images of people holding hands, a cell phone, a baby, the middle finger, a gun and more.

Ignorance Is Bliss is the followup to 2016’s award-winning Konnichiwa. Look for Ignorance Is Bliss to land on May 31, while interested fans can pre-order the album now over at orcd.co. Keep it locked here for more details about Skepta’s latest project.

In case you’ve missed it, Skepta, Octavian and more have been confirmed for Homecoming Festival 2019. And for the latest in grime, Stormzy tapped trap sensibilities for murky new single “Vossi Bop.”
