The rapper tells Capital FM that he wants to release the as-yet-untitled album in November.

Dizzee Rascal has said he is eager to make his new album a "classic".

The 'Holiday' rapper is currently putting the finishing touches to the follow-up to his last album, 'Tongue N' Cheek', which is due in November.

Speaking to Capital FM at the Summertime Ball, Dizzee said he had just completed a recording session in Los Angeles and was now trying to recruit some collaborators for the record.

"All I've done so far is collaborations with producers, I've just been trying to get the songs done and then do the collaborations at the end," he said.

"I'm nearly there, I'm nearly at the end of my album – it should be coming out in November."

Asked what kind of genres the album would feature, Dizzee replied: "It's more dance, up-tempo, a lot of good hip-hop as well. I do a bit of dubstep, it's what I do.

"When I do it there's always another twist. I just want to make sure it's right. I'm trying to make it a classic."
