Loyle Carner has returned with new music, over 18 months on from his stellar Mercury-nominated album ‘Yesterday’s Gone’.
Releasing his new song ‘Ottolenghi’, alongside the track’s official video, Loyle’s return hears him connect with friend Jordan Rakei. The song’s title is in reference to pioneering chef Yotam Ottolenghi (who also makes a cameo in the visual), whilst the clip itself follows Carner and his family on a train journey into the surreal.
Since the release of ‘Yesterday’s Gone’ Loyle has toured the world, started a cooking school for kids with ADHD, created an award-winning, bespoke rap for the Champions League final, campaigned for men’s mental health and fronted a worldwide YSL campaign. By anyone’s standards, Loyle has already achieved a fair whack. Whether ‘Ottolenghi’ leads the charge for a new full-length project remains to be seen, but regardless, his return is more than welcomed.
