Dizzee Rascal promises "worldy" album after taking relaxed approach to recording
Dizzee Rascal has explained that his forthcoming new album is likely to be "more worldly, but still fun" because of his no-pressure approach to working on it.
Speaking to BBC's Newsbeat, the 'Bonkers' star revealed that he has taken significantly more time with this record than with any of his previous offerings and feels as though the relaxed atmosphere has helped bring out his full potential:
"I've spent more time on this one than I have the other ones. I'm relaxing. I've never had this much time off to just make an album at my leisure. Having a year off to just chill, have a year off and have fun, not have to worry about was what I needed to do. No pressure."
"I went to LA for a holiday but I started bumping into people, started getting in the studios and ended up staying out there for three weeks."
He also confirmed that another collaboration with Scottish DJ Calvin Harris might be on the cards, adding:
"I was on the phone to Calvin Harris the other day - we'll see if he can come up with something. There's also a video that's coming in a couple of weeks for a track I've done with a guy called DJ Muggs. He's the producer in Cypress Hill. He made 'Jump Around', 'Insane In The Brain'… all them big classics. We got a track called 'Snap Your Neck Back'. It's big."
