Rodney Smith shares a third track from his forthcoming album; listen to the Barry White-sampling track below

Having recently announced his first album in four years, Roots Manuva has shared a third track taken from the album, via the Guardian. The track’s called ‘Don’t Breathe Out’ and you can hear it above.

Following on from the Four Tet-produced ‘Facety 2:11’ and Switch-produced ‘One Thing’, the track takes a considerably different tack from the first two tasters of the new album, rooted around a sample of Barry White’s ‘Honey Please, Can’t Ya See’. Roots Manuva offers some words with the track saying: “Lyrical rogue values in neo-spiritual rare groove, rehash bash on the edge of the funk that made the soul, but seek to refine a modern approximation of ‘Gospel for the out of box thinkers’”. Bleeds is out, via Big Dada, on October 30.
