A*M*E is back with a new single, Find A Boy, and will be lighting up Blackpool Festival Headland arena on Sunday as part of the Wanted and McFly promenade concert.

Already setting up to be a certified summer hit, Find A Boy was produced by UK hit maker Naughty Boy, who also co-wrote the track with A*M*E and chart topping Emeli Sande.

Fans of A*M*E’s previous work (City Lights and Ride Or Die) will notice that Find A Boy, with its dark pumping bass line, reveals a more mature sound for the 17-year-old with acclaimed newcomer, Mic Righteous’ guest feature and intense flow bringing a new dynamic to her ever evolving sound.

Since being played twice in a row by Mistajam earlier this week (“so nice I’m going to play it twice”), the track has spread across the blogosphere, adding to the 250,000-plus YouTube hits she has been racking up with her viral videos.

Travelling from war-torn Sierra Leone at the age of eight, A*M*E grew up in South London and, having finished school just last year, she has been hard at work writing, recording and performing. But it doesn’t stop there. A*M*E (aka Amy Kabba) has also been busy creating her own fanzine, called (coincidentally enough) The A*M*E which is her take on the world and her love of fashion, music, the 90s and everything in between.

This summer is hotting up for A*M*E who will be playing dates with the likes of JLS, The Wanted, Rizzle Kicks, Olly Murs, Nandos Gignics as well as her own dates across the UK.

Find A Boy will be released on Future/Universal on July 30.
