Little Simz has unveiled details of her forthcoming EP Drop 6.

Last week, Little Simz teased fans with the idea of releasing a new EP during the coronavirus lockdown. Fans responded to her suggestion well, and today (29 April), she's shared some details of the new EP, which is titled Drop 6.

It'll feature five tracks, one of which is a collaboration with Alewya, and will be Little Simz's first collection of tracks since her 2019 Hyundai Mercury Prize-nominated album (and Best Fit's favourite album of 2019) GREY Area.

Last Friday (24 April), Little Simz shared a statement about her forthcoming EP. She wrote, "I started working on an EP early April, with a plan to finish it by the end of the month. Around mid-April I got disheartened and started getting in my own way. That self-doubt shit again. “This isn’t good enough, people won’t like this, its shit, the mix is trash," everything negative under the sun."

She adds, "After serious procrastination I decided to stop being a lil bitch and cry baby and knuckle down on the EP. I gassed myself up, There’s no one else here, I'm alone, I had to. It started to feel good. I started to get really excited, wheeling myself up, spudding myself. I had to. Then I completed it. and when? End of the month just as I’d set out too. Things come full circle in the end don’t they? The middle feels like growing pains, self-doubt is a bitch and the only way out is through. Thank you for being the lights that you are. You’re all needed, valued, appreciated, and loved. Not just by me of course and I am sure I can speak on behalf of everyone you hold dear in your lives close to you."

Tracklist:

  1. might bang, might not
  2. one life, might live
  3. damn right
  4. you should call mum
  5. where’s my lighter (feat. Alewya)
Little Simz's Drop 6 EP lands 6 May via her own label Age 101.
