Tinie Tempah is going "back to basics" on his new album.
The 'Pass Out' hitmaker has promised the record, which is provisionally titled 'Demonstration', will have a more "raw, indie, underground" sound than his 2010 debut 'Disc-Overy', and admitted he is particularly excited by a collaboration with Dizzee Rascal.
He said: "I've got something on there with Dizzee Rascal, which is amazing. I've been listening to Dizzee since I was 12years old so that means a lot to me. I'm really, really excited about that.
"It's very hard, it's very grimey. It's the complete opposite of what people would think we were gunning for. When I played the instrumental to Dizzee he was like, 'Thank god you didn't try and get me on something that you want to make a big hit.'
"It's very indie and underground and raw. I'm just taking it back to the basics."
Tinie also revealed he has teamed up with Calvin Harris for a big dance track after being thrilled by the response to his 2010 collaboration with Swedish House Mafia, 'Miami 2 Ibiza'.
He added to Capital FM: "I think it was really nice the magic that 'Miami 2 Ibiza' created, it opened up a different side to my music and took me to places that I never, never thought I'd be with the Swedish House Mafia.
"So I kind of wanted to replicate that excitement again but even bigger and even better."
