Stormzy – Blinded By Your Grace, Pt. 2 (Ft MNEK)

I kicked off last month’s Monthly Selections with Stormzy’s ‘Big For Your Boots’, and with the release of his debut album Gang Signs & Prayer, there’s just no stopping him.  His latest Gospel inspired track ‘Blinded By Your Grace, Pt. 2 (Ft MNEK)’, serves up a truly reflective and vulnerable side to Stormzy; one that we don’t get to hear too often from him or any Grime artist. The aforementioned track in particular is about God. Speaking with The Guardian Stormzy commented:

“One of the things that I’m most impressed by, in God, is the grace that he has. No matter what we do, there’s always this, “OK, it’s fine. I understand.” That’s not to say I can go out and do something bad… But just that knowing that someone’s got you through out anything, and they’re not going to judge you, they’re just going to understand your situation. That grace.”

Blinded by Your Grace‘ was inspired by his early childhood days at Sunday Church. Stormzy wanted to bring BBYG to new heights and he felt MNEK was the man to do it. Speaking with The Fader, Stormzy said:

“I’ve always clocked with MNEK, he’s got such a voice. I was like, I know he can go to church with it. He came round to the studio, and it was like watching a magician work. He was able to record his riffs and his [backing vocals] and his harmonies all at once without hearing them back. He took the tune exactly where I wanted it to go.”

Produced by Fraser T Smith (Adele, Sam Smith, Katy B, Kano), the Grammy-award winning producer spent 10 months working on the album with Stormzy. Gang Signs & Prayer is available now via Merky Records. Upcoming dates for Stormzy include Coachella and three dates at )2 Academy, Brixton (May 2-4)
