Skream, Benga, and Artwork Announce First Magnetic Man Single

Magnetic Man, the dubstep supergroup comprised of Skream, Benga, and Artwork, just announced the coming of its official debut single, "I Need Air." The track will be the first taste of the trio's as-yet-untitled, forthcoming full-length album, and features a vocal performance from former Alicia Keys collaborator Angela Hunte wrapped around the twistedly pop-minded dubstep tune. On his collaborative project moving into the future, Skream said, "With all three of us doing it, it’s going to get ultra-no-holds barred. This is Magnetic Man. It’s no longer three people: it’s a whole." The "I Need Air" 12", which contains remixes by Red Light, Breakage, and Shy FX, will be made available via Columbia on July 26, and the digital download is out the day before. Check out Magnetic Man's tour dates below.
