The rapper-turned-singer confirms details about his much-anticipated releases.
Plan B has announced plans to release his new album 'iLL Manors' in May.
The album, which is the follow-up to 2010's 'The Defamation Of Strickland Banks', will see Plan B return to his hip-hop routes.
Plan B, real name Ben Drew, said: "You could call 'iLL Manors' bass-line, soul, hip-hop.
"The album has the lyrical depth of my first record but the musical composition is light years ahead as it's informed by everything I've learnt in the last five years - writing, producing and playing with a live band. I feel I'm better than I've ever been."
The album will be preceded by the release of a film, also called iLL Manors, that has been written and directed by Ben.
