Mercury Prize-winning British rapper Speech Debelle returns with a new album. ‘Sunday Dinner On A Monday’ is an examination of family, friends, lineage, and ancestral DNA, through the lens of afro-futurism.
“It’s about how we imagine and then create our own futures”, says Speech. “The album is about our journey through life, as we learn from experiences that expand our senses. We learn internal management and get closer to ease. Some of us even become nourished, like a good meal. This is THAT album.” Corynne Elliot
(born 17 March 1983 in London, England), better known as Speech Debelle, is a British rapper signed to the Big Dada record label.
She was the winner of the 2009 Mercury Prize for her debut album Speech Therapy.
