The first preview of There Is No End - "Cosmosis" - landed last month and featured Skepta and Nigerian poet Ben Okri, and today (9 April) a second track from the album titled "Stumbling Down" has been unveiled, and features Zambian-born, Australian-based rapper Sampa The Great.
Sampa The Great says, "To be able to create with someone who constantly refined what music was to him and create his own musical language is an honour. Something I tried to do through this song and will continue to do onwards, is experiment with music. No holds barred. That's the best way to hear something you’ve never heard or express in a way you’ve never expressed before!"
Allen wanted to work with new rappers for his album, but passed before most of the rappers had the chance to record their parts. Producer Vincent Taeger says, "Tony's idea was to give rappers the space to breathe and freely create. He wanted really not to just do Afrobeat, but rather something new and open, with very different sounds for the drums for each song and feels and tempos that were really grounded to the core in hip-hop."
There Is No End will also feature collaborations with Lava La Rue, Danny Brown, Jeremiah Jae, Nah Eeto and many more.
