Souled out

Plan B has revealed that he won’t be making another soul album, despite the runaway success of ‘The Defamation of Strickland Banks’. The hip-hopper-turned-soul sensation has decided to retire his alter-ego and concentrate on making other types of music, which is great news for fans and probably terrible news for his record company.

‘Why try and make another soul record when I made the best soul record I could?’ he asked, rhetorically. ‘It was the best I could do. If it could have been any better then I wouldn't have let the label release it when they did.

‘As an artist, someone with many different tastes, I want to go and venture into a different style - maybe reggae, maybe punk, dubstep. Who knows. There's stuff that I'm experimenting with at the moment that I really want to get stuck into.

‘I've got a lot of work on my hands. We've got the Ballad of Belmarsh that I need to finish and we've got ambitions to shoot a Strickland Banks film, which will be joining all the videos together, interlinking scenes, and that's a whole other story.’
