Wretch 32 says he has enough new material each year to release two albums and he would like to bring out a new LP every 12 months

Wretch 32 wants to release an album every year.

The 29-year-old rapper's last LP, 'Black and White', came out in 2011 and has his next record 'Growing Over Life' ready to go.

Wretch insists he'd rather not wait and instead he'd be happy to have an annual release, regardless of how many copies it sold.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Every year I have two hours worth of material which should be two albums, this is my offering to the world, and I feel like every year I don't put one out, I'm not complete as a person because I'm not doing what I'm meant to be doing.

"Everything's got to have this strategy in this day and age. I think everybody's afraid of having an album that sold 200,000 and then doing the next one which doesn't do as well and I never really got into this to be in that frame of mind about sales projections."

The pop star - whose latest single '6 Words' is out now - has even contemplated giving away his music online, but he thinks if he did "leak" his tracks the act itself would overshadow the songs.

When asked whether he'd considered leaking his tracks, he said: "Yeah, many a time but the sad thing about that is it's an injustice because the focus is always more concerned on the word 'leak' than the music.

"It's not on the music, on the album, it's just on the event that's happened because it's shocking to people to hear that. I don't really want to be known for that, that's what always stops me."
