As the MOBOs prepare to celebrate their 25th anniversary they've partnered with Marshall Amplification and MOBO Unsung to release a 13-track album titled MOBO: UnSung Class Of 2022.

The artists include Zitah, Jordan Adetunji, JClarke, Sarah Ikumu, Crae Wolf, Mace The Great, Adreyn Cash, Genesis Elijah, Natalie Lindi, and A30 so keep your eyes peeled for their work in the future.

MOBO founder Kanya King comments on the comp, saying: "MOBO continues to provide a unique talent platform and push for more representation, both on stage and behind the scenes across the creative industries, and crucially through MOBO UnSung, our development programme for emerging talent at a crucial time in their careers."

"This year's MOBO UnSung Class of 2022 are among the finest the UK's homegrown scene has to offer and it's going to be rewarding to see these artists make their mark upon the world through their love of music.

"It is very exciting and fitting in this 25th anniversary year of the MOBO Awards, to be able to announce the release of the first compilation album from MOBO UnSung supported by Marshall Amplification, as part of our five-year partnership.
