Following the massive critical acclaim for his single ‘iLL Manors’, Brit Award-winning artist Plan B (AKA Ben Drew) has now confirmed the release of the follow-up track ‘Lost My Way’, which is set for release on July 2.

The single was premiered on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show last night and declared the ‘Hottest Record in the World Right Now’. Ben also performed the song on Jools Holland two weeks ago.

Produced by Al Shux (Jay-Z, Lana Del Rey) and Plan B, ‘Lost My Way’ is taken from the eagerly awaited album iLL Manors, which follows his quadruple platinum-selling album The Defamation of Strickland Banks. iLL Manors – the album – is set for release on July 16.

The polymath that is Ben Drew never stops to draw breath, and his first feature length film is out soon. The iLL Manors movie, his directorial debut, is set for release on June 4. He is also filming a BBC3 documentary that sees him go back to Tunmarsh Centre, the pupil referral unit in Newham that he attended as a young man and to work with the teenagers there creating new music. They will be performing this together at the Radio 1 Hackney Big Weekend. This summer also sees Ben perform a 7 date sold-out tour as well as a selection of festival appearances including Ibizia Rocks and Melt Festival. And in September, he’ll be starring in a remake of The Sweeney with Ray Winstone.
