Roots Manuva Bleeds on LP + Download

Not only one of Britain's greatest musical artists, but one of the greatest lyricists full stop, Roots Manuva is back with a dazzling new album, Bleeds. Past collaborations with everyone from Gorillaz to the Maccabees to Leftfield to Coldcut to the Cinematic Orchestra, Rodney Smith's influence can be heard right across the musical landscape.

Now, with his sixth studio album, he has made his most concise and focused record to date, his most emotionally affecting and powerful release since his breakthrough, Run Come Save Me. Drawing upon production assistance from young British producer, Fred, together with musical heavyweights Four Tet, Adrian Sherwood and Switch's new production team, With You, the title of the record is, in the man's own words, an "egocentric jest of daring to do things in the tradition of Jesus: I'm ready to bleed for the artform."

It is, of course, also a reference to the way in which genres, in the sonic world of Roots Manuva, have a tendency to bleed into one another, so that hip hop, reggae, techno, funk, neo-classical, all blend together to create "liquid soul, the blood, the bleeds that paint infinite sacred wonders in our dreams and unfold in our day-to-day."
