It’s early Christmas present time as Hot Press proudly makes the new Bitter Rocc album, MMXIII Pt Deux, album available for free download.

Recorded with the assistance of the good folk at Project A Apparel, it’s the Artist Also Known As Richard O’Connor’s most personal and reflective work yet.

And if he sounds loved up, that’s because Bitter recently got married, baby, in Vegas!

“I feel like I’ve finally made it,” he tells our woman Maeve Heslin in the current issue of Hot Press. “This album didn’t take me long to do at all. I recorded it in the space of three or four weeks. It was the whole marriage thing: I was just on such a high. You can hear it in the album, where I talk about ‘the dream’. If you’re happy in your job and have a good partner by your side – you’re living the dream. That’s the true meaning for me, and that’s what the album’s based on. I’m starting a new life.”

While there’s no mistaking the Dubliner’s hip hop credentials, MMXIII Pt Deux is awash with pop hooks, romantic swoons and some seriously sharp lyrics.

With cameos from Chris Haze, Jay and Silence DemAll and Funzo, it’s an urban soul record to cherish.
