Multi-award winning British artist Guvna B has released his brand new album 'The Village Is On Fire'. This, his tenth studio album, is his richest and most rewarding work to date. Against a soundscape that evokes London in all its agony and glory - a seamless blend of soul, house, grime, Afrobeats and more - he grapples with the aftermath of an unprovoked and racially motivated attack.
He does so with a supporting cast of Michaela Coel, Ghetts, Kierra Sheard, KaeKurd and DarkoVibes. In an often chaotic and transient world, where society is being ravaged by the cost of living crisis, Guvna B’s music enjoys a rare status: that of the anchor, the object that despite the turmoil around it will not shift. That status can only come after years of experience, dedication and sacrifice, but now Guvna B is finally here in his most accomplished form. This refinement and resilience is at the core of his very finest work to date.
Father, author, podcaster; producer, TV pundit and presenter, entrepreneur; lyricist, victim and survivor of racist violence. In just thirty-three years, the highly-acclaimed Guvna B has lived a life which has been as varied as his elite talents. And now - a decade and a half into a career which has already brought him three MOBO Awards, three Urban Music Awards, and tens of millions of streams - he has created a body of work which brings together his diverse worlds in one powerful, harrowing and uplifting listen.
