Young Fathers raise anticipation levels with the release of “Toy,” the latest single from their third album Cocoa Sugar, out next Friday, March 9 on Ninja Tune. “Toy” is the third track to be revealed from the album, following lead song “Lord,” which announced the band’s return in November, and second single “In My View.” The new track is another enticing glimpse of what to expect from Young Fathers on Cocoa Sugar: something typically unique and exhilarating but leaner, more muscular and self-assured than ever before. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.

Cocoa Sugar sees Young Fathers—Alloysious Massaquoi, Graham ‘G’ Hastings and Kayus Bankole—operating with a newfound clarity and direction. Written and recorded throughout 2017 in the band’s basement studio and HQ, the album is without doubt their most confident and complete statement to date, and is set to build on the success of the group’s previous two albums: 2014’s Mercury Prize-winning DEAD and 2015’s White Men Are Black Men Too.

The record has already been met with widespread acclaim; described by Mojo as “an avant-pop masterclass” and Uncut as “a heady joy” while Q Magazine stated “Cocoa Sugar finds Young Fathers at a fascinating juncture: opening up, moving forward, but still existing in a sonic hall-of-mirrors all of their own”

Cocoa Sugar will be available on CD, LP, limited LP and via all digital services. It features a striking visual aesthetic, with cover photography from Julia Noni and creative direction from Tom Hingston. Cocoa Sugar is available to pre-order via

Wed Feb 28 , 2018
Gunna By Jack Barnes Pioneering a laid-back, head-nodding approach to ATL trap music, Gunna makes gangsta music for late nights. Hypnotically flowing over gently strummed acoustic guitar and snapping snares courtesy of producer Richie Souf, Gunna bemoans the dishonesty of fake friends in “Lies About You.” Featuring an appearance from Lil Durk, who delivers an […]
