Hoodies All Summer will be Kano’s sixth studio album and features Kojo Funds, Popcaan, Lil Silva, D Double E and Ghetts. It promises to cover the broader strokes of hip-hop and dancehall and is produced by Blue May and Jodi Milliner. His first release since 2016’s Mercury-nominated Made in the Manor; the 10-track record marks a much-anticipated return.
Kano has also dropped a 17-minute double music video, directed by Aneil Karia. It features tracks Trouble and Class of Deja (featuring D Double E and Ghetts) from the new album.
The album itself promises a “visceral examination of communities marked by isolation, frustration, anger and loss, as well as creativity, defiance and hope”, and according to the press release, moves beyond the personal themes of his previous record to tackle broader social issues.
Last night (17 July) Kano shared a teaser trailer for the video on Instagram. You can watch the full clip above and check out the album art and tracklist below.
