After getting himself cancelled following an altercation with Katherine Ryan at the NME Awards last year, slowthai is back, addressing his haters head-on with new track ‘ENEMY’.
Opening with The 1975’s Matty Healy saying, “Everyone, send your thoughts to slowthai. Fuck knows where he is but god bless the boy,” followed by a woman later declaring: “slowthai, you have officially been cancelled. Cunt.” It’s a direct response to the backlash he received due to being a prick at the awards ceremony, twisting his new ‘ENEMY’ tag into the hard AF genre-bending number.
His first piece of new material since last year’s ‘Nothing Great About Britain’ LP, have a listen below.

The track features on his recently released second album ‘TYRON’.
All being well, he’ll hit up a handful of smaller venues later this year.
This time last year, slowthai’s name was in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Now, on second LP ‘TYRON’, we find an artist facing his demons but coming out fighting.
A remarkably efficient job of reclaiming his own narrative.
