Having become a viral sensation after a spontaneous performance with Dave on Glastonbury’s Other Stage earlier this summer, Alex Mann (AKA #AlexFromGlasto) has dropped his very own single.
If you missed his viral performance from Glastonbury you can watch it here;
Since his Glasto performance, Alex has appearance on various TV talk shows and has come a viral sensation.
Jumping while the iron is still hot Alex has now released his first single called “What Ya Kno Bout That Bro?”.
The 15-year-old took to Twitter to describe the unexpected series of events;
I'm so grateful for what's happened. 6 weeks ago I finished my GCSEs and then went to Glastonbury with a few of my mates. @santandave changed my life forever. Head over to @GRMDaily to check out my first track! 🔥🙏🏻 #AlexfromGlasto pic.twitter.com/1kl1y2I4Fg

The release is bound to create conversation, after Mann’s post-Glasto emergence sparked discussion around how people view black artists and their white counterparts. Much was made of Mann’s appearance on Good Morning Britain after Piers Morgan lauded the young man’s rise to fame despite previously criticising the message grime artists convey on their records.
Mann will undoubtedly have a lavish summer before returning to reality when school starts again in September. In the meantime, we hope the teen can cope with all his “ex girls bothering man”.
