Firmly established as one of the crossover superstars of British music who has always remained true to his roots in rap, PROFESSOR GREEN builds on a career which has spawned two Top 3 albums and eight consecutive Top 40 singles.
Featuring vocals from Last Shadow Puppet and solo singer-songwriter Miles Kane, ‘ARE YOU GETTING ENOUGH?’ is the first single to be taken from PROFESSOR GREEN’S upcoming third album ‘GROWING UP IN PUBLIC’ which will be released on OCTOBER 14TH. The new releases look set to add another incredible chapter to Pro’s all-conquering career which has already accumulated 500,000 album and 1.75 million single sales in the UK alone.
Of the single, Pro, says, “Miles, Kid Harpoon (Tom - who produced the record) and me are all good mates, the song was just a by-product of our camaraderie. Looking forward to performing this one with Miles, it's really heavy so it'll be carnage. I might even wear a paisley shirt!”
PROFESSOR GREEN is poised to make a high-profile return to the live arena this Summer when he hits Glastonbury’s main stage (Friday June 28th). Renowned for the energy of his live sets, Green is also building extensive touring plans which are provisionally set for later this year.
PROFESSOR GREEN’S profile is underlined by his huge social media statistics – 2 million likes on Facebook, 1.75 million follows on Twitter, 32 million views on YouTube and another 55 million views on his Vevo channel. His journey so far has also been documented in the six-part Channel 4 series Professor Green Unseen which was subsequently followed by six episodes of Professor Green Unseen: After Hours. A brand new TV series is currently being filmed to air in the Autumn.
Few artists achieve the rare distinction of achieving huge commercial success while maintaining their credibility. Yet Green has managed precisely that. His collaborations with artists as varied as Emeli Sandé, Lily Allen, Example, Labrinth, The Streets, Fink, Royce da 5’9, DJ Khalil and Wretch 32 demonstrate the respect that his contemporaries hold him in. He has also been nominated for a plethora of awards including the Brits ‘Best Male’ plus earned Best Dancefloor Filler at the NME Awards for his track ‘Jungle’ as well as a MOBO Award for Best Hip-Hop/Grime Act.
