Following her recent Danger EP, which featured collaborations with Diplo, Jessie Ware, Iggy Azalea and Wiley, Katy B releases her first single proper from her upcoming second album, due this summer through Columbia. It’s called What Love Is Made Of.
And, just like her Mercury-nominated, chart-conquering debut album On A Mission – released all the way back in 2011 – it is rather fine.
This time round she’s been working with long-time cohort Geeneus and Fraser T Smith, with tracks from Skream and Diplo also in the mix to make the final tracklisting.
Katy is playing at various festivals around Europe this summer, including Radio 1’s Big Weekend and, on 14 July, London’s Wireless Festival at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
