New music: Katy B – Danger EP

What do you do when your debut album is heralded as a modern dance masterpiece? Well, if you're Katy B you gather a stellar cast of collaborators – producers Jacques Greene, Diplo, Geeneus and Zinc as well as Jessie Ware, Wiley and Iggy Azalea – and make an EP to give away for free.
Danger, a stop-gap before the new Katy B album is released early next year, is an impressive reflection of what she's into right now. So while the Jacques Green-produced Danger slowly emerges through beats and twinkling synths, the bouncy, Diplo-assisted Light as a Feather shows off her more playful side, while the delirious Got Paid is completely bonkers and that's even before Wiley shows up. The highlight, however, is the seductive Aaliyah, produced by Geeneus and featuring Jessie Ware. Framed as a modern update of Dolly Parton's Jolene ("Aaliyah please don't take my man, although you know that you can"), it's deliciously danceable and melancholic.

Tweeting about the EP, Katy B wrote: "I got an early Xmas present for you all in a bit. To say thank you for the support :) Too much Love!!!! X"

Katy B is expected to release her second album in 2013. The follow up to 2011's 'On A Mission', the London-born singer recently claimed her new material is about growing up and becoming independent. "Standing on my own two feet is inspiring new lyrics for the album, due out early next year. I'm making the transition from being a girl into womanhood and finding out what my responsibilities are. It's the first time I've lived in the real world with bills to pay, and that's coming across in what I'm writing."
