Dave recently released ‘Black’, a powerful meditation on black identity, excellence and the diaspora. The first taste of new music this year, the track has already won widespread acclaim from critics and audiences alike for its profound lyrics and striking visuals.

The single is the first taste of new music since ‘Funky Friday’ debuted at No.1 on the Official Charts last November, making Dave only the second artist to debut a track at No.1 in the UK last year after US superstar Drake.

From becoming the youngest ever winner of an Ivor Novello Award for Best Contemporary Song for his politically-charged single ‘Question Time’ to amassing over 600m streams as a completely independent artist, Dave continues to establish himself as one of the most important young voices in Britain today.
