HOT on the heels of recent release ‘Hate’, Loyle Carner has dropped another summer single, dubbed ‘Georgetown’.

Produced by hip hop producer Madlib and featuring Afro-Guyanese poet-playwright John Agard, the track explores Carner’s personal identity and his experience of growing up mixed race. Reconciling both sides of his identity, the rapper unloads dense bars over Madlib’s woozy production.

He said “John Agard’s poem “Half-caste” had a heavy impact on me. To see someone who was older, that looked like me, sharing a reflection of a similar lived experience made me feel comfortable/proud to not fit in. It kinda gave me the permission to finally write explicitly about being mixed. There’s so much beauty in the gaps in-between, and in some ways this song touches on that. For me, it’s about finding this inner confidence through understanding of self, and spending time back home. It is a representation of finally feeling like one whole person instead of two halves. Also another piece of the MADloyle puzzle. More on the hard drive.”
