British rapper Dave has announced his hugely anticipated debut album Psychodrama will be released on Friday 8 March.

The London-based artist, born David Orobosa Omoregie, revealed the LP with a brand new single, "Black", and a Nathan James Tettey-directed video shot between Nigeria and London.

The video features a number of the 20-year-old's heroes including Stormzy, Damson Idris, Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon, Ozwald Boateng and Raheem Sterling.

Dave has established himself as one of the most promising talents to emerge on the UK rap scene in recent years, and in 2018 became the youngest-ever winner of an Ivor Novello award for his politically charged single "Question Time".

As an independent artist, he has achieved more than 600m streams before releasing a full album and has performed several major collaborations, including with fellow London artist AJ Tracey.

Dave scored his first number one as a lead artist in 2018, with the Fredo collaboration "Funky Friday".
