Dizzee Rascal, one of the UK’s biggest stars, hasn’t kept up too much of a high profile over the last couple of years and now he seems to keen to hold off his comeback even further with the delay of his next album.

Dizzee Rascal was originally due to put out his next album, entitled ‘The Fifth’ on July 1 but just three days before the record is due to hit shelves, Dizzee has announced that the album now won’t see the light of day until September.

The next album was due to be Dizzee Rascal’s first since signing a multi-million pound worldwide deal with Universal Records, but ‘The Fifth’ will now be released via Dizzee’s own Dirtee Stank label on the 30th September.

‘The Fifth’ was due to feature a stellar line-up of guests including the likes of Robbie Williams, Jessie J, Sean Kingston and Angel. The first single from the album, ‘Goin’ Crazy’, has already achieved moderate success after reaching No.5 on the UK Singles Chart.

Speaking to the BBC this week, Dizzee said: “It’s wicked, man! It’s just cool to have him on there. We recorded it in LA – I went to his house and watched him doing it. We’ve also got will.i.am on the album, Tinie Tempah, Jessie J, Sean Kingston, Angel. The album is just banger after banger, man. I’m really happy about that.”

As of yet, no official reason has been given for the delay but considering the news broke just days before the album was slated to receive a worldwide release, things don’t look too rosy for the former Mercury Music Prize winner with ‘Boy In Da Corner’.

We could hear more from Dizzee Rascal tonight however, as he’s due to play the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury tonight at 8.15pm.

It’s all a little bit bonkers
