Powell shares first track from his forthcoming XL-released debut album

Last month, Powell revealed that his debut album will be called Sport in an email to a fan having shared an email address on billboards in London and New York. Now, he has shared the first taste of that album - a track called 'Frankie' - and you can check out the video for it above.

The track features vocals from HTRK's Jonnine Standish, while the album will be released by XL - a fact which he references in an email by describing himself as "the 27th most important artist on XL Recordings" - and is set for release on October 14. Those who emailed Powell, via the email address shared on billboards last month, were all sent new details of the album including the video for 'Frankie' overnight.
