Professor Green returns with his third studio album, Growing Up In Public. Firmly established as one of the crossover superstars of British music, the Hackney born and raised rapper builds on a career that has spawned two Top 3 albums and eight consecutive Top 40 singles - including hits Read All About It (#1), I Need You Tonight (#3) and Just Be Good To Green (#5) ' with the September 2014 release of single Lullaby featuring Tori Kelly and album Growing Up In Public.

Marking the next chapter in his extraordinary story, Growing Up In Public bears Green's trademark autobiographical approach and critically acclaimed lyrical style. Touching candidly on everything from loss, grief and the black dog through to love, marriage, fame and raving, it sees him switch seamlessly from cheeky self deprecating humour, witty braggadocio and satirical jabs, to more reflective, confessional moments with the finely tuned skill of a natural wordsmith throughout.

Artistic versatility and an encompassing approach to production and songwriting has led Green to enlist a diverse range of collaborators for Growing Up In Public. From producers DJ Khalil (Eminem, Jay-Z, 50 Cent), TMS (Emeli Sandé, Ed Sheeran), and Chris Loco (Rita Ora, Tinie Tempah), through to his new writing partner, North London-based Kid Harpoon (Florence and the Machine).

Featured artists on the album include Rizzle Kicks on the droll funked hopper Name In Lights; James Craise on the punchy, gospel-flavoured Dead Man's Shoes; Tori Kelly on the pop-smart smash-in-waiting Lullaby, and Mr Probz on the acoustic-guitar driven soulful anthem in the making Little Secrets. Meanwhile there's a walk-on part for Cara Delevingne, a half mast salute to Dappy in the Thabo featured ballad Not Your Man, and a skit courtesy of an irate Robbie Williams which concludes the riff-heavy album opener, I Need Church.

The forthcoming release looks set to add another incredible chapter to Green's all-conquering career which has seen him amass 500,000 album and 1.75million single sales in the UK alone; embark on three headline tours in addition to performing on the main stages of countless festivals such as Glastonbury, V Festival and Wireless; and be nominated for a plethora of awards including the Brits 'Best Male' over and above earned NME and MOBO awards. Not to mention a high profile underlined by huge social media statistics - 2+ million Facebook likes, 2+ million Twitter followers ' and the fact that his journey has been documented by Channel 4 in two six episode TV series (Professor Green Unseen and Professor Green Unseen: After Hours).

Professor Green's album Growing Up In Public and single Lullaby (featuring Tori Kelly), will be released by Virgin EMI on 22nd September and 15th September respectively. A nationwide headline UK tour will follow in November and December, with tickets on sale now at /
