The album will be released via Big Dada this October

Ninja Tune have announced the release of a new album from Roots Manuva called Bleeds.

Bleeds is his sixth studio album and features production from Four Tet, Adrian Sherwood and Switch as well as young British producer Fred. It will be issued by Ninja Tune offshoot Big Dada. The title is, in his 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 also a reference to his varying musical influences and the blending together of those sounds to create “liquid soul, the blood, the bleeds that paint infinite sacred wonders in our dreams and unfold in our day-to-day.” Bleeds is out on October 30 and you can listen to a track from it above, the Four Tet-produced ‘Facety 2:11’. Roots Manuva will launch the album on November 5 at Islington Assembly Rooms with tickets for the show set to go on sale at 10am this Friday (August 28).
