“There it is on the tip of my tongue, I think I love you.”

Ahead of his debut album later this year, MNEK has unleashed an absolute sex jam in the form of new single Tongue, which is available to stream and download now.

The electronic bop is instantly infectious, and focuses on the moment in a romance where you want to confess all your feels for your better half.

“Tongue is one of my favourite songs from the album. It’s fun, it’s sexy, and it’s different to anything I’ve put out before,” MNEK told Fader.

“It is an indication of me taking risks with my new music. The album is something I’m so proud of because it’s an audio world I’ve created which is a true body of work. I can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”

We can’t wait either.

Tongue serves as the follow-up to MNEK’s recent track Paradise, which had a powerful video to boot.

What’s more, he teamed up with Riton for floor-filler Deeper back in October, to deliver a booming house anthem.

The star had a global smash hit and multi-million selling single with Never Forget You featuring Zara Larsson back in 2015.

As we all know, MNEK is also one of the most in-demand writers in pop, having worked with the likes of Beyoncé, Madonna, Little Mix and Kylie Minogue.
