RECENT PRAISE FOR FUTURE UTOPIA’S 12 QUESTIONS ALBUM:

‘The 21 tracks comprise songs and poems of pain and loss, hope and encouragement, spoken-word thoughtfulness and urgent raps – of big ideas and big tunes… here’s an epic, multi-level, multi- voice concept album, about the philosophical past, crushing present and metaphysical future’The Telegraph

‘It comes as no surprise that an album by a producer renowned for sonic lushness, complexity and variety sounds glorious’Sunday Times Culture

World renowned producer, songwriter and musician Fraser T Smith has today confirmed details of his brand-new podcast, 12 Questions and has shared a trailer for the upcoming series. The first episode, released on 15th April features legendary US musician Nile Rodgers, former England footballer and current broadcaster Peter Crouch and model and TV personality, Abbey Clancy.

12 Questions features discussions between Fraser and a range of incredible guests, who are invited to answer and navigate the universal, human and urgent questions addressed on his recent album of the same name, released under his Future Utopia moniker. These questions include Fear or Faith? How Much Is Enough? Do We Really Care? What’s in A Name? What’s the Cost of Freedom and What Is Love?

Other guests currently confirmed for the podcast include British rapper and DJ Craig David, legendary producer Brian Eno, leading stage artist and designer Es Devlin and UK grime artist Kano. Poet Laureate Simon Armitage, spoken-word performer Kae Tempest, poet, rapper and podcaster George The Poet, legendary DJ Norman Cook and radio host and broadcaster Julie Adenuga will also be appearing in the coming weeks.

Speaking about the 12 Questions podcast, Fraser says:

‘The concept behind my 12 Questions album was to bring a diverse group of luminaries together to answer life’s biggest questions. I learned so much but didn’t want to stop there, so we’ve brought together an equally inspiring new group of enlightened podcast guests to ponder life, the universe and everything in between’.

As a producer for some of music’s biggest names, Fraser T Smith has a remarkable track record. He has worked with the likes of Adele, for whom he co-wrote and produced the Grammy winning single Set Fire To The Rain (2011), as well as Stormzy, whose BRIT Award winning debut album Gang Signs & Prayer (2018) Fraser wrote on and produced. Fraser also contributed to Stormzy’s second album Heavy Is The Head (2019), reaching the number one spot on both the UK Official Singles and Albums Chart in January 2020. Fraser worked with Dave to co-produce his Mercury Prize winning debut album Psychodrama (2019) and accompanied Dave for an electrifying performance of his track Black at last year’s BRIT Awards. It is this catalogue of work that has seen Fraser become one of the most in demand creators in contemporary music today.
