If you're stateside you may not have heard much from Katy B who had a rapid rise to fame in the UK last summer when featuring on a few Magnetic Man tracks as well as having a smash hit with her Benga produced track "Katy On A Mission". Now news has come that her debut is set for a March 28th release date and Benda will have had a helping hand in the production of the LP. Regarding her full length debut Katy said "It’s me, just as a young woman, partying, relationships… the album’s definitely where I’m coming from. Tracks like Disappear and Easy Please Me are all experiences in my life and emotions that I’ve felt.”
Prior to the albums release Katy B will be on tour in February with SKoA favourite Tinie Tempah before embarking on an 11 date jaunt of her own in April. You can check out the albums tracklisting and her April tour dates after the jump. 2011 looks like another good year for Ms. B.
