It’s been five years since Plan B last graced us with new music – back then it was Ill Manors, the politically-charged title-track from both his excellent record of the same name, alongside coupling as the soundtrack to the equally-gritty London-themed underground movie too.

Today he returns with the emotional In The Name Of Man, a song which instead hears a more-calming, creative approach versus his rap-focused discography. It’s more ‘Strickland Banks’ than Ill Manors, yet the thought-provoking lyrics remain ever-present.

Premiered as Mistajam’s latest Radio 1 ‘Hottest Record’, Plan B confirms the song leads the charge of an all-new album, citing “[it] feels good to be releasing music again”.
