The 'Bonkers' rapper has his eye on working with The Voice UK judge Tom down the road.

Dizzee Rascal has revealed his hope to record a collaboration with Sir Tom Jones one day in the future.

The 'Goin' Crazy' rapper has features from both Jessie J and will.i.am on his new album 'The Fifth', but says their fellow The Voice UK judge Tom is the team-up he has really dreamed of.

"Tom Jones is the original gangsta so one day I'll get him," Dizzee revealed to the Daily Star this week. "I was just lucky other people's schedules meant they could do it.

"I'm blessed to have Robbie Williams, Tinie Tempah and Sean Kingston on there," he explained.

The 'Bonkers' rapper went on to tease exactly what fans can expect from his new record, revealing it's a "happy" album that's a bit of a departure from his previous releases.

"It's the most positive, happy album I could make over three years," he promised. "I wrote a lot about my experiences in America, a lot of it is me soaking up LA, Miami, Houston, it was organic."

This past week Dizzee unveiled a teaser clip from new song 'We Don't Play Around', which features guest vocals from 'Wild' singer Jessie J.

Dizzee Rascal releases new album 'The Fifth' on 1st July.
