Berwyn announces debut album Who Am I

Trinidadian-born, London-based R&B artist Berwyn has announced the release date of his upcoming debut album Who am I.

Acclaimed London rapper and R&B artist Berwyn has announced details of his upcoming debut album Who am I, a 13-song collection due out July 12 via Columbia Records. A seamless blend of hip-hop, R&B and spoken word, the album features the rising singer’s recent releases ‘Neighbours’ and ‘I Am Black’, tackling some of the most pressing issues facing Britain today , would like to highlight.

Who am I chronicles the intimate discoveries within Berwyn’s ongoing search for meaning and freedom, exploring the countless memories, places and forces that have shaped his life as he reflects on faith and religion, grapples with themes of addiction and embraces the warmth of love. Bound by the rich layers of Berwyn’s predominantly self-produced soundscape, the upcoming record navigates themes of immigration and race as it draws listeners along a path of internal liberation and resilience.

The album announcement is accompanied by the release of Berwyn’s brand new single ‘Dear Immigration’, a searing spoken word track that explores the inherent brokenness within the immigration system.

“You make me feel like I’m a fugitive and a runaway,” he says in the song. “You made me look at the mirror in horror, you took my morning… I want you to know that since I was nine, I felt like a crime, I imagined you coming after me every day of my life.”


Already a hallmark of the British music scene, it’s hard to believe the Trinidadian-born, London-based artist hasn’t released a full-length record yet. With two mixtapes – including Mercury Prize nominated DEMOTAPE/VEGA – and EP and countless collaborations to his name, Berwyn is far from a newcomer. The authentic and unapologetic creative force from Trinidad continues to evolve as he blurs the lines between poetry and music, creating fiercely political and deeply personal records that speak to life in modern Britain.
