Plan B has announced full details of his new film and album ‘iLL Manors’. The film, which stars Riz Ahmed, Nathalie Press and Dannielle Brent, will be released on 4th May and is set in Forest Gate in London. The film runs over the course of a few days, with six inter-linking short stories, represented by a different rap song, coming together at the end. The soundtrack for iLL Manors will be released on 7th May via Atlantic Records. Speaking about the album, Plan B said:
“You could call ‘iLL Manor’s bass-line, soul, hip-hop. The album has the lyrical depth of my first record but the musical composition is light years ahead as it’s informed by everything I’ve learnt in the last five years – writing, producing and playing with a live band. I feel I’m better than I’ve ever been.”
Plan B will tour the UK this summer, playing seven shows in forests across the UK. The gigs begin at Thetford Forest on 15th June and then take in five further forests before finishing up on 7th July at Delamere Forest in Cheshire.
