Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has contributed to the mythology of contemporary music culture since the dawn of Rock & Roll. More than half a century later, this love affair endures and many of the world’s most prestigious recording artists continue to connect with the marque as a symbolic expression of success.

In this spirit, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is delighted to announce a remarkable collaboration with Mercury Music Prize and MOBO award-winning musician Skepta, who has conceived and recorded a track in its entirety from inside the New Rolls-Royce Phantom.

Joseph Junior Adenuga, better known by his stage name Skepta, was inspired by the phenomenal serenity afforded to those who are conveyed in Phantom, recording ‘Skepta RR’ while being chauffeured along the banks of Lake Lucerne and through the mountains of Switzerland.

Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, “I want to welcome Skepta to the World of Rolls-Royce. He has shown a unique and exciting appreciation of the marque and interpreted Phantom’s credentials as the world’s quietest and most luxurious motor car with an exceptionally creative track and film.”

Phantom’s standing as the longest existing nameplate in the world of motoring is testament to its enduring appeal to rock stars, royalty, titans of industry and the stars of the silver screen. With more than 130kg of sound insulation and two-layer 6mm double-glazed windows, it is no surprise that Skepta chose New Phantom as his perfect rolling recording studio.
