Shamir, Shamir, Shamir… remember Shamir? He dropped an incredible single-and-video combo called 'On The Regular' via XL Recordings in October last year. His matter-of-fact style of rap-singing (or sing-rapping?) is super endearing and the music was lusciously simplistic and percussion-laden.

Well, now there's a whole lot more Shamir on offer with the announcement of his debut album on XL. It'll be available from 19th May. The tracklist's below. Oh and for a little pre-XL Shamir, because why not, here's 'Sometimes a Man' from his Northtown EP, released earlier in 2014.
