Little Simz has announced that she will release a new EP next month. Titled ‘Drop 6’, it will feature five new tracks all recorded in lockdown.

“I don’t mind being alone”, she says. “I quite enjoy my own company, actually. However, choosing to be alone is different from being forced to be alone and that’s where the difficulty comes in. You’re stuck with yourself, 24 hours of the day, seven days of the week. There are only so many naps I can take in a day. So this is what happens when the world stops”.

“I started working on an EP early April, with a plan to finish it by the end of the month”, she goes on. “Around mid-April I got disheartened and started getting in my own way. That self-doubt shit again … After serious procrastination I decided to stop being a lil bitch and cry baby and knuckle down on the EP”.

So then, “I gassed myself up – there’s no one else here, I’m alone, I had to. It started to feel good. I started to get really excited, wheeling myself up, spudding myself. I had to. Then I completed it. And when? End of the month just as I’d set out to. Things come full circle in the end don’t they? … This is a turbulent time but we don’t fold. We don’t come from that. We will always be fine”.

‘Drop 6’ is set for release on 6 May.
