New focus single from Stormzy’s third #1 album “This Is What I Mean”

  •  New focus single from Stormzy’s third #1 album  “Need You” featuring Afropop sensation Ayra Starr & rising star tendai. 

Further to achieving the #1 position with his critically acclaimed, third album This Is What I Mean”’ and offering up a stand-out performance at this year’s BRIT Awards, British musician Stormzy has returned with a new single “Need You” featuring Afropop sensation Ayra Starr & rising star tendai.

 Over the course of his expansive, heartfelt and defiantly sprawling #1 album, the BRIT and Ivor Novello award-winning, Stormzy delivered an undeniable classic; effortlessly condensing any number of disparate styles and genres into music which bravely broaches any gap between modern Black British music, soul and hip-hop

 A bold and courageous leap forward from his critically acclaimed previous two #1 records, “Gang Signs & Prayer” and “Heavy Is The Head”, this isn’t music simply for the pop charts but rather, an intimate and sincere love letter to music. He speaks on forgiving his absent father on the mellifluous “Please” and refers to his challenges with paranoia, depression and self-doubt on penultimate track, “I Got My Smile Back” – which also features a guest vocal from the incomparable India.Arie 

It’s a record which showcases intensely personal and lyrical themes which in turn lay bare the vulnerabilities, regret, frailties, healing, joy and triumph in a manner and to an extent that reframes the notion of what rap artists traditionally might do and be

 The confidence which drove the album stemmed from a deeper and far more spiritual place than we have seen from Stormzy previously. For all the success and awards that he has accrued during his brief, meteoric career, the lockdown that ensued from the coronavirus pandemic gave him one commodity he’d long lacked: time. And thanks to his sense of accomplishment following Glastonbury he was, for the first time, in a position to make the most of it 

Much of the creative energy that shaped the album emerged from a Stormzy music camp in Osea Island – a remote island in the Essex estuary that’s only accessible via a Roman Causeway for four hours a day at low tide

 Surrounded by leading-edge producers and musicians (who will all be unveiled in due course), each and every morning they would eat and pray together and then spend the rest of the time driven to creative heights by each other’s talents

 “When you hear about music camps they always sound intense and sombre,” says Stormzy. ““People saying: “We need to make an album.” “We need to make some hit records.” But this felt beautifully free. We’re all musicians but we weren’t always doing music. Some days we played football or walked around taking pictures. And the bi-product to that was very beautiful music. Because when you marry that ethos with world class musicians and the best producers, writers and artists in the world, and we’re in one space, that’s a recipe for something that no one can really imagine. You can’t even calculate what that’s going to come up with. And it came up with a big chunk of this album.”


The net result is that while “This Is What I Mean” sounds very much like Stormzy, it sounds like no Stormzy album you have ever heard before!

St Paul’s Carnival comes to St Monica Trust

St Paul’s Carnival comes to St Monica Trust

A unique outreach project has brought Carnival to residents at a South-Bristol retirement village.

Community Elders and pupils from Fairlawn Primary School, joined residents at St Monica Trust’s Monica Wills House Retirement Village for a screening of a film celebrating the roots of St Pauls Carnival.

Inna Wi Carnival: Reflections of a Generation was directed by St Pauls Carnival Community Outreach Worker, Keziah Wenham-Kenyon. The film explores the culture and tradition of the St Pauls Carnival from the 1960s to the present day, as told by the generation that helped create it.

Keziah’s role has been funded by the St Monica Trust since 2021 with the aim of providing outreach to Community Elders and preserving the traditions of Caribbean Carnival for future generations.

As well as the film, other community development projects delivered by Keziah include digital inclusion workshops and the creation of human libraries.

Keziah said: “The initial stage of the project was about engaging with the older generations in the St Pauls community and combating the social isolation caused by the pandemic.

“We then continued working with the same group of elders to capture and preserve the stories of the generation that brought carnival over to the UK from the Caribbean.

“There were a number of ways we could have gone about it, but after a discussion with the elders and the team, we decided that making a documentary was the best way of preserving their memories for future generations.”

St Monica Trust residents were greeted with a steelpan performance by Year 5 pupils, followed by a screening of the documentary in the activities room. Afterwards, Community Elders and residents swapped their own memories of St Paul’s Carnival.

Keziah is working towards an online release of the film later in the year, plus arranging more community screenings, such as the ones taking place across the St Monica Trust this week.

There are also plans to design a workshop for schools that will see the film screened as part of an active learning programme, which will include talks given by the community elders.

Keziah said: “I feel truly honoured to have delivered such important work and am overjoyed by the positive impact it has had on those involved.

“It is a really special thing for the elders to see their stories reflected on the big screen and it means a lot to their generation that their stories are still valued and being celebrated.”

“Our thanks go to the St Monica Trust for funding such a special project and supporting Carnival’s long-term commitments to our elders.”

The St Monica Trust has been supporting the lives of older people in Bristol and the surrounding area since it was established more than 100 years ago.

The Trust’s Charitable Impact Team helps tackle a variety of issues by distributing hundreds of thousands of pounds to individuals, families and organisations across Bristol, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset and Bath & North-East Somerset.

Director of Charitable Impact, Adam Rees said: “The Charitable Impact Team have been working alongside St Pauls Carnival since 2019 when we first funded their Elders Brunch on the morning of Carnival. We are delighted to have provided £50,000 of funding over the last two years for Keziah’s important work with Community Elders.

“The funding has helped ensure that the traditions and history of Bristol’s iconic Carnival celebrating African-Caribbean culture are secure and that these traditions and skills are passed on through the generations.”
