South London’s very own Santan Dave has finally unveiled his latest single, a taste of his forthcoming project We’re All Alone In This Together, which is set to arrive on July 23. The freshly released “Clash” marks the highly anticipated collaboration between Dave and fellow South London heavyweight Stormzy. The track was originally teased on Twitter in June 2021 through a series of images of Dave and Stormzy at a video shoot, and fans have been asking for it ever since. On the track, Dave opens up the track with flex after flex:
Jordan 4s or Jordan 1s, Rolexes, got more than one, My AP cost thirty-one, millimeters forty-one/ Stick him up with a stick-stick, he drew the shorter one/ You can’t short me one, in the club with the shortest one/
The new project is a follow up to 2019’s Psychodrama. In a very recent conversation, Dave took some time to deliver a deep reflection on what that project meant to him. “I think the story behind the album is as important as the album itself. The story felt like most of my life leading up to that moment,” he says. “It felt like it was all falling into place… a nice chapter to close that way of speaking about my family, my brothers, and to have something immortalized. The way it’s structured and the way songs are written, naturally I was just in a very autobiographical place. It’s very straight up.”
In regards to what Stormzy has been up to, he’s gifted fans with a few features here and there. Most recently was with Yaw Tog and Kwesi Arthur on the “Sore (Remix),” in addition to an appearance on Ghetts’ Conflict of Interest standout “Skengman.” His sophomore LP, Heavy Is The Head, was released back in 2019, featuring contributions from the likes of Headie One, H.E.R., Ed Sheeran, Burna Boy, and Tiana Major9. That project has since earned the Croydon emcee a Platinum certification.
