'Cocoa Sugar' follows the group’s previous two albums; 2014’s Mercury Prize-winning 'DEAD' and 2015’s 'White Men Are Black Men Too'.

Written and recorded throughout 2017 in the band’s basement studio and HQ, 'Cocoa Sugar' sees Young Fathers operating with a newfound clarity and direction, and is without doubt their most confident and complete statement to date. In November 2017, Young Fathers announced that they’d completed work on a new album. The trio – Alloysious Massaquoi, Graham ‘G’ Hastings and Kayus Bankole – marked the news by previewing a brand new song, ‘Lord’. Just like their previous standalone 2017 single ‘Only God Knows’ (written for the Trainspotting T2 film and described by director Danny Boyle as “the heartbeat of the film”), ‘Lord’ provided an enticing glimpse of what to expect from Young Fathers’ third full album; something typically unique and exhilarating, but leaner, more muscular and self-assured than ever before.
