Grime pioneer Kano returns with his first official release in nearly three years â€“ a bolshie double A-side titled Hail / New Banger and released in conjunction with this years Record Store Day, on 13th April, 2015.
Produced by Glasgow native Rustie, lead single Hail is accompanied by a gritty, black and white video directed by Rsky Roadz and Kano, that gives a first-person view around the East End streets of London before culminating with a minute-long teaser of itâ€™s counterpart, New Banger.
First premiered by Mistajam, Hail made an instant impact gaining support from the likes of Zane Lowe, Logan Sama and Trevor Nelson across BBC Radio 1/1Xtra, Kiss FM and Capital Xtra. Kano was later invited to perform the single for a Best of British Live Lounge session, showcasing that his raw live energy certainly hasnâ€™t waned during his time off.
With hints of an album release for this Summer, we for one, cannot wait!
