Little Simz's 'Grey Area' LP Is Essential Listening

March 04, 2019

Over recent months, Little Simz has dropped a slew of singles including the percussion-driven "Offence" and "Boss", the minimalist and nostalgic "101 FM" and the jazz-tinged, funk mood that is "Selfish" — all leading up to the release of her third album, Grey Area, which is out today. Already critically acclaimed, the 10-track offering includes features from Cleo Sol, Chronixx, Little Dragon and Michael Kiwanuka, and is arguably her best work to date.

Having toured with Lauryn Hill, worked on songs with the Gorillaz and been shouted out by Kendrick Lamar, Simz has earned the respect of the legends but perhaps this time around, the rest of the industry will stand up and take notice.
