Back when Katy B shared her collaboration with Four Tet and Floating Points ("Calm Down"), it was hard not get excited about the impending Honey album. Featuring those two gifted producers alone hinted at a potentially exciting new offering. Now that we have the full tracklist, it turns out we had no idea what were in for. Every single track on the LP is a high-profile link up and, given her history for shrewd collabs, we should have really expected this.
Among the list of featured producers are Kaytranada, The HeavyTrackerz, JD. Reid, MssingNo, Geeneus, Mr. Mitch, Major Lazer, Hannah Wants, Jamie Jones, Gorgon City, Four Tet, Floating Points, Chris Lorenzo. And, if that weren't enough, she's also managed to rope in Novelist, J Hus, D Double E and man-of-the-moment Craig David to lend vocals and bars to the album. Even though we're all rightly hyped about albums from Drake, Kanye and Skepta, this is a very welcome surprise.
