Given that he’s already worked with a few people you might have heard of (Beyoncé and Madonna, anyone?) and had great success with previous tracks, ‘Deeper’, ‘Paradise’ and ‘At Night’, you’d be excused for thinking MNEK was about six albums deep by now. In fact, 2018 will see the arrival of his long-awaited debut album.

The first single he’s offered up is ‘Tongue’. On the surface, the Faithless ‘Insomnia’-esque whispering is a 4am drunk text to that girl from Bumble reimagined as a club banger. However, the message of the chorus is actually quite sweet. Simply put, MNEK is a bit in love with someone but he’s too shy to tell them. We love it and can’t wait for more to come!
