A RAPPER and songwriter will kick-off his nationwide tour in Oxford this winter.

Professor Green has announced his new UK tour, M.O.T.H, and released a new song months after fracturing his neck.

The 35-year-old, real name Stephen Manderson, cancelled his tour earlier this year after injuring himself in a fall just hours before his first show.

In a post on social media in February, he shared a picture of himself on a stretcher with his head supported in a neck brace, with a tube in his nose.

He told his fans that he had had three seizures resulting in a fall which fractured vertebrae in his neck.

At the time, he promised he would return with a winter tour, and counted himself lucky for not being in a worse condition.

Along with the tour announcement, Professor Green has unveiled new track Matters Of The Heart, the first track from his forthcoming M.O.T.H. EP, which will be released in September.

The musician reached number 1 in the UK singles chart in 2011, with his song Read All About It, featuring vocals from Emeli Sandé.

He is ready to get back on stage with his 11-show tour, which will start on Saturday, November 16 at the O2 Academy in Oxford.
