Reputable for his boundary-breaking sound and dauntless approach, the Manchester-hailing prodigy, Black Josh, is making his highly awaited return with the release of his brand new genre-bending track named, “The Birds”.

Posing as the first release off of his forthcoming project, ‘Heartbreak Hostel’, a 15-track body of work with guest features from Lancey Fox, Shei, Tyler Daley, Cult Of The Damned, Kenzie TTH, and Ian Leone, that is set to drop on October 29th. The self proclaimed ‘Yung Sweg Lawd’ has 5 solo albums behind him and an impressive catalogue of work that goes back as far as 2015. As he continues to prove himself as one of the most exciting British hip-hop artists to emerge, it’s clear that Black Josh is showing no signs of slowing down.

Accommodating a percussive and eerie backdrop, Black Josh welcomes the track with his distinct tone and bouncing flows. Using this release to boast his dauntless approach and refined pen game, “The Birds” is 3 minutes of straight greaze. Encapsulating that Manchester flare that sets him apart from others in the scene, his ability to re-invent his music doesn’t go unnoticed. Housing an irresistible swagger, the Honey JD-directed visuals follow the promising talent through a trippy lens around his local ends as he delivers yet another quality drop for fans to indulge.
