Scroobius Pip can no do wrong, can he?

As the world waits for the Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip’s debut album to arrive (we’re hearing early May), Mr Pip has been busy.

This is him guesting with Yila, who turns out to be an old schoolmate of Le Sac, on a song about wanting to be an astronaut when you grow up.

Whilst discussing the track with Scroobius, Yila mentioned the young character Dwayne from the film Little Miss Sunshine who was keeping a vow of silence until he could become a jet pilot. When Dwayne discovers that he’s colour blind he screams at the top of his lungs. It helped form the concept of the track, but totally ruined the film for Scroobius who had only watched the first half of it the previous night.

Er, right, I just realised that I really should have warned you about that too.

Anway, “Astronaut” is out on Sunday Best in a few weeks time. The tune is here and the video is below
