Plan B describes his album 'iLL Manors' as "a reflection of today"
British hitmaker Plan B scored his second UK No.1 album on the weekend with 'iLL Manors' and he revealed that his home country provided inspiration for the record.
In an interview with the NME, the star explained that he wanted to reflect his understanding of current issues in the songs featured on the cut and described the tracklisting as "a reflection of today":
"It's a mirror, a reflection of today. And of the problems that have been swept under the carpet since the riots put them on the front pages."
"That's why I made it so visceral, to get under people's skin. I wanted people to misunderstand it and to start debating it again."
The Official Charts Company revealed that Plan B outsold the UK's No.2 album, which was confirmed on Sunday (July 29) as 'Handwritten' by The Gaslight Anthem, by 2 copies to 1.
