Little Simz has announced details of her new album, the follow-up to 2019’s ‘GREY Area’.
‘Sometimes I Might Be Introvert’ will be released on September 3 via Age 101 and was produced by Simz and her long-time collaborator Inflo.
The album will feature guest appearances from Cleo Sol and Obongjayar, as well as The Crown actor Emma Corrin. According to a press release, the record finds Simz “looking at the chaos and disorder in the world right now with resourceful, refined eyes, and she sees the glorious opportunity and enormous responsibility that affords.”
Last night, the British MC shared the first song from the forthcoming album in ‘Introvert’, which details “lives lived in the cross-hairs of society, fueled by fear, exhaustion, frustration, but also a kind of white hot political awakening”.
In the video, directed by PRETTYBIRD’s Salomon Lightelm, Simz raps alongside a dance ensemble at London’s Natural History Museum. The scenes are interspersed with footage of civil rights protests and more. Watch it below.
The tracklist for ‘Sometimes I Might Be Introvert’ is as follows:
‘Woman ft. Cleo Sol’
‘Two Worlds Apart’
‘I Love You, I Hate You’
‘Little Q Pt 1 (Interlude)’
‘Little Q Pt 2’

On her last album ‘GREY Area’ – which featured singles including ‘Offence’, ‘Boss’ and ‘101 FM’ – Simz was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and won the Ivor Novello for Best Album in 2020. “Been a long journey but more on the horizon to come,” she tweeted in reaction to the latter honour.
