When will Stormzy's third album 'This Is What I Mean' be released?

Stormzy dropped 'This Is What I Mean' on November 25, almost three years after the release of his last album.

The grime star first teased the news of his upcoming album after he took to the stage on the first night of his UK tour to announce that he is releasing new music this year!

He returned to the road after his 'Heavy Is The Head' tour was subjected to several delays due to COVID-19.

The first concert of his long-awaited tour kicked off on March 13 at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff – and he treated the audience to the scoop on his next record.

He played a video to the crowd that confirmed the album rumours, saying in the clip: "This is the album of my dreams. This album is deeper than man could ever imagine. I’m free."

The video showed the musician in the studio and concluded with a message to fans, revealing that the project was available to pre-order.
