Dissimulation is set for release on 22 May.
Speaking in the video, he shares:
“A lot of people only see one side of me. Success, the triumph – no one gets to see the other side. I definitely conceal that side. I do it because I’m afraid. I’m afraid of what people might think. I’m afraid of what people might say. No one likes to feel vulnerable.”
Those who pre-order the album will be invited to a preview party, which will feature KSI and yet-to-be-announced guests, on 20 May at 20.00 BST.
The live stream will end with a Q&A, with all profits made going to charity.
For those wondering what this is, it’s a private livestream of me playing the album (Dissimulation) a few days early to everyone who joins, with other special guests coming. This won’t be released anywhere after. Once in a lifetime thing. So hopefully I’ll see you there soon 🙌🏿 https://t.co/3IEl5YHmZq
