The 'Love Drunk' star tells Capital all about his new album, which is released early in 2012.

Loick Essien has revealed that he has collaborated with Wretch 32, Labrinth and Dappy on his new album.

The singer's debut album 'Identity' is due to be released next year and will also feature Tanya Lacey on the song 'How We Roll'.

Speaking to Capital FM's Rich Clarke, Loick confirmed the collabortions with N-Dubz star Dappy, Labrinth and Tanya, but also revealed that he had recorded a track with Wretch 32, who he recently supported on tour.

"Dappy's on there and Labrinth's done 'Love Drunk'," he said.

"We've also got a newcomer on the album as well – someone that I'm really happy about. On the tour we felt it was only right that we got Wretch 32 on the album for one of the songs, so I'm really excited about that.

He added: "I haven't heard it as yet, I haven't heard what he's done, but I'm really looking forward to hearing it. It should be really cool."

'Identity' is currently scheduled to be released on 5th March.

Meanwhile, Wretch 32 and Labrinth are among the artists set to perform at this year's Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball in London.
