slowthai  Thoughts   Options   2020  how new is this song? not even a day old as it was released earlier today - when it was published to the UK rapper's YouTube channel who incidentally is celebrating his 26th birthday today - born Dec 18th 1994- - this song will not be on the unique Northhampton rapper's anticipated Feb 2021 second album "TYRON" which will be the long awaited follow up to his acclaimed May 2019 released debut album "Nothing Great About Britain" - Here is link to the video version of this new song=https://youtu.be/cla5DISPY5I
