UK lyricist Context is back with a brand new single ‘In The Bag‘ and announces a performance at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in May. The single, premiered exclusively via Radio 1 and 1Xtra DJ Mistajam, is a tongue-in-cheek play on the phrase ‘In the Bag’. Its a heavy hard hitter with a mule kick. Breaks sit alongside Euro Synths and angry vocals are guarenteed to get heads nodding.
Norwich-born lyricist Context has come a long way since his first career highlight back in 2011, the release of the self-made video for ‘Off With Their Heads‘ starring Ed Sheeran, which made MTV’s playlist.
Four years later and his celebrity fan list including Plan B and Ellie Goulding, the London-based MC has a whole host of achievements to his name. He was the first unsigned artist to be nominated in the MTV Brand New list, he signed a global publishing deal with EMI / Sony / ATV and collaborated with big names; including one of his musical inspirations, Mike Skinner, who joined Context for a re-recording of his 2013 classic ‘Small Town Lad Sentiments‘, last year.
Both fans and critics can look forward to seeing him and his unique brand of ‘poignant grit’ at the BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend in May.
‘In The Bag’ is released 31 May 2015.
