It features on Kevin Martin's forthcoming album, 'Fire'

The Bug has collaborated with Moor Mother on a new track, 'Vexed'.

The new song, which you can check out above, is the final cut to be unveiled from The Bug's forthcoming album, Fire, ahead of its release later this week. "Anytime I work with The Bug I am always thinking of the live performance aspect," Moor Mother says of her contribution to 'Vexed', adding: "I wanted to do something I knew would go over really well in a live setting."

The Bug, AKA Kevin Martin, says of the collaboration: "I had worked/toured with Camae, AKA Moor Mother, on the ZONAL album Wrecked, and we subsequently toured some The Bug ft. Moor Mother shows together. We found we had a shared taste for musical pyromania, verbal intensity and dropping mindbombs. (That and both being rabid hip hop headz with an encyclopedic knowledge of its history, and particular love of Mobb Deep/Wu-Tang etc.) When I asked Cam if she would use the platform to unleash her frustrations, she replied, all guns blazing with 'Vexed'."

Ninja Tune will release Fire on August 27, 2021.
