Wretch 32 says his upcoming third studio album is "almost finished" but that he is carrying on because he has more time.
The grime artist says nothing is "completely mixed and mastered yet so any new features or vocals can still get added".
He confirmed there were a number of collaborations with fairly unknown artists on the follow-up to Black and White.
He said: "We have Angel, who I am just a massive fan of. We have George the Poet, Jacob Banks. These are artists that people are not too familiar with."
Wretch 32 is performing at BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend on Sunday 26 May.
