The latest, greatest contender for Manchester’s music throne, Aitch cements his position as one of the most exciting young British rappers with his hotly-anticipated debut album, Close To Home. A love letter to the city which shaped him, revealing a well of hidden depths to surprise, delight, and charm his ever-growing legion of fans, Close to Home was preceded by the release of his evocative new single, ‘1989’. Built on the irresistible hook from The Stone Roses’ iconic single ‘Fools Gold’, ‘1989’ is a clever juxtaposition of two prominent musical eras, a bridge joining Manchester old and new, a twin celebration of the city’s auspicious storytelling past and thrilling future. Aitch effortlessly combines the undeniable groove of the legendary Madchester anthem with his quick-witted bars and whip-smart wordplay.
Close To Home captures a young artist on the verge of global superstardom, spreading his wings and displaying his ever-growing songwriting skills. Aitch’s debut album, comprised of 16 tracks, combines a mature and reflective side with the charisma and cocksure swagger he has become known for.
