Klein has shared details of her fourth studio album, Harmattan.

Taking its name from the season in West Africa, the album will be released via classical label Pentatone, and sees Klein fusing classical influences with grime, R&B, drone and improvisational jazz. Klein's vocals appear across the record, while Charlotte Church also contributes vocals to the track 'skyfall'.

Above, you can watch a video for lead track 'hope dealers'. "Honestly, to me, 'hope dealers' is really an R&B tribute song to grime, Channel AKA, the neeky kids who felt they never belonged," Klein explains. "OMG Malorie Blackman too... All of that. Because low-key, that's always been the core of everything."

Pentatone will release Harmattan on November 19, 2021.
