Plan B Readies Third Album

According reports from NME, British rapper/singer Plan B is putting the finishing touches on his forthcoming third studio album entitled The Ballad of Belmarsh set for a March or April release. Following the soulful Motown influenced detours of his last album The Defamation of Strickland Banks (my favourite album of 2010) It's set to be a return to the cut-throat hip-hop of his début Who Needs Actions When You Got Words, however still very plot-heavy. It probably won't have the same commercial appeal as Defamation—if that's the case I hope it's just as obnoxiously vulgar, gritty, pornographic and lyrically compelling as Actions. I'm very excited for this one.
