Hotly tipped newcomer Jai Paul has released his debut, self titled album - with almost no fanfare or publicity. Listen to the album in full below.

The UK urban star hit the scene in 2007 with his laid-back demo 'BTSTU', which was later sampled by both Drake and Beyonce in recent years. He made a return in 2012 with his second demo release 'Jasmine', and has now released his debut album through Bandcamp. Both tracks are included on the release.

The sixteen track album has no song titles, and follows the laid-back, sample heavy sounds heard on his previous singles. The album includes a cover version of Jennifer Page's 1998 hit 'Crush'.

Little is known about Jai Paul, having given no interviews in the media and allowed online hype establish him as one of the most mysterious new musicians on the UK musician scene.
