British-based sensation Stormzy has revealed his highly-anticipated new single “Crown” with an accompanying music video following the release of his previous track “Vossi Bop.”

The Charlie Sarsfield-directed visuals see Stormzy performing live at the iconic Church Studio in London singing while a pianist plays notes behind him. The track features vocals from a gospel choir and is produced by MJ Cole and Jimmy Napes.

“Where words fail, music speaks,” Stormzy says in the press release. He continues:

“I’ve been struggling to find words to describe how much this song means to me… struggling to explain exactly why I felt the needed to say what I’ve said on the record… and can’t quite summarise the journey of emotions the song takes me on when I listen back to it. I’m very proud of myself for making this song and I can’t wait for you all to hear it. Nothing but love and respect for my brother Jimmy Napes a world class phenomenal talent and MJ Cole the genius and legend – an honour and a pleasure to work with you both my brothers. We’ve created something very special and close to my heart.”

Check out the visuals above, and in case you missed it, watch the new visuals for Blueface and Rich the Kid’s “Daddy.”
