The brilliant Labrinth makes a welcome return to the music scene with his new single Let It Be blasting him back onto the airwaves in a riot of melody, rhythm and brass.

It's the first taste of his second album (Take Me To The Truth) following his hugely successful debut, Electronic Earth, which featured the singles Let The Sun Shine and Earthquake; all this came after he had produced the enormous Pass Out and Frisky for Tinie Tempah.

We caught up with Labrinth to discover his Ultimate Playlist: stand by for a brilliant and eclectic selection of top tunes.

Let It Be is released September 28. Take Me To The Truth is released later this year. For the latest info visit labrinthofficial.com
