Plan B is reportedly working on new material in the studio and is gearing up to make a comeback with a new "soulful" album

Plan B is reportedly working on a comeback album.

The 'Stay Too Long' hitmaker - whose real name is Ben Drew - disappeared from the spotlight in 2012, after the release of 'Ill Manors' and his film of the same name, but is seemingly set to make a much-anticipated return.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Ben became a dad and took his time to get back in the studio. The album sounds soulful with no rapping at the moment."

The news comes as a surprise because after becoming a dad, Ben was in limbo about his career and even considered giving it all up for his daughter.

The 32-year-old star previously said: "I'm completely in love with her, she's the most important thing in my life. More important than music or film or anything.

"It makes the next album very difficult because I know how long I'm going to have to be away from her in order to make the next album successful and that scares me a bit.

"So I'm at a crossroads in terms of what I want to talk about and whether or not I even want that in my life anymore."

Plan B's third album is expected to be released in 2016.
