Fresh from his No.1 single ‘No Regrets’ and the follow-up ‘Rockstar’ featuring Brian May, which reached No.2, Dappy returns with a third iconic smash, ‘Good Intentions’, through All Around The World/Island Records on September 23rd.
‘Good Intentions’ sees Dappy stripped back against a down tempo beat, showcasing his superlative vocals and ever knowing lyrics. Dappy emphasizes a raw vulnerability within the track where he pleads with his audience to hear him out before labelling him ‘the bad one’. The accompanying video was filmed on location in Hawaii earlier this month, and will premiere soon.
‘Good Intentions’ is taken from Dappy’s highly anticipated debut solo album ‘Bad Intentions’, which is due to drop on October 1st. Recorded over the last year, the record is an extraordinary body of work. Club smashes, are peppered with soul bearing slow jams to create a confident collection of pop brilliance. Created with the help of the industry’s most in demand production houses such as Fraser T Smith, SX, Nathan Retro, TMS, Dawood, Wayne Hector and Alf Millar, the album is sonic manifestation of Dappy’s personality.
Dappy sold over a million albums as part of dynamite trio N-Dubz and 2012 will see him tour the UK after being dubbed a ‘livewire performer’ by The Independent at a recent show. The seventeen date tour will see Dappy making stops at various key venues around the country, including Manchester Academy and Birmingham O2 Academy. The tour will climax with a show at the London HMV Hammersmith Apollo. With an appearance at Radio 1 Hackney Weekend under his belt, Dappy has also performed at a string of festival dates which have included T in the Park, T4 on the Beach and Mallorca Live at BCM, and will round the summer off with performances at V-Festival 2012.
