Debut album Yesterday's Gone set for January release


22-year-old, South Londoner Loyle Carner announces his highly anticipated debut album 'Yesterday's Gone' will be released 20th January through burgeoning label AMF Records. Lead single ‘The Isle Of Arran’ was premiered on Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 show and was hailed her Hottest Record In The World. Fans can receive ‘The Isle Of Arran’, ‘Ain’t Nothing Changed’, ‘Florence’, ‘Stars & Shards’ and ‘No CD’ when they preorder ‘Yesterday’s Gone’.

Loyle's insight, erudition and poetic intensity have earned him the respect of all the right people: die-hard hip-hop fans, industry insiders and most importantly, his peers. ‘Yesterday’s Gone’ is planted at an intersection between the boom-bap of East Coast hip-hop, jazz-inflected portraits of South London, and soulful laid back pop. There’s a bedrock of honest and raw sentimentality running through ‘Yesterday’s Gone’.

Album opener 'The Isle Of Arran' sounds a little like early Kanye - with its pitched-up gospel sample, a chorus of rhythmic claps propelling the tune along and lyrics marked by relatability, honesty, self-depreciation, themes of responsibility and family, it hits the ground running and sets the tone for the whole album.
