Following the release of his debut single “Favourites” featuring acclaimed 25 year old London rapper Little Simz, Serge Pizzorno aka The S.L.P. has revealed he will release his first solo record The S.L.P. on August 30 via The Orchard.
The mastermind behind BRIT Award winning English band Kasabian – who’ve seen the last consecutive five of their six full lengths hit the coveted #1 spot on the UK’s Album Charts, a feat accomplished by only a handful of artists in British chart history – Serge will tour the UK and Europe in support of this debut solo release. “The Youngest Gary” comes hot on the heels of second track from the album “Nobody Else.”
“The Youngest Gary” opens with a heavily distorted guitar riff, before sitting on a laid back vibey bass line, with Serge’s signature vocals proclaiming “I’m a man of the people.”

Recorded and produced by Serge at his Leicester studio The Sergery The S.L.P. is an 11-track trip across hip-hop influence, richly melodic moments, psychedelic-funk, new-wave and euphoric scenes. Serge says of the project, “Moving forward, I’d like to collaborate more and open that door more. The S.L.P. project will become this sort of place I can go and just do whatever. It’s so important to have that.” Continuing he said, “My life in the band and my boys, that’s part of me that will be there forever, but then there’s something else I have to get that out or I won’t be able to move forward.”
