The 'Earthquake' rapper will release his debut solo album in March 2012 after a headlining UK tour.
Labrinth has confirmed the name and release date for his first solo album.
The rapper will release 'Electric Earth' in March next year, through Simon Cowell's Syco label, as his first release as a recording artist.
Labrinth released his debut single 'Let The Sun Shine' in September 2010 and followed by 'Earthquake' featuring Tinie Tempah in October this year, both of which have been mainstays on the Vodafone Big Top 40.
"I'm a musical geek. It's like there's this big, wild universe in my head and I love to express it," the rapper, who has written, composed and produced the record, said of his creative process.
Labrinth is also expected to head out across the UK on his first headline tour in February, following which he will perform alongside the likes of Calvin Harris and Rihanna at Wirelesss Festival.
Labrinth will release 'Electric Earth' on 19th March 2012.
