Method to the Maadness is the UK rapper Kano's fourth studio album. The album has contributions from several artists including Wiley, Boys Noize, Hot Chip, Chase & Status and Damon Albarn. During an interview with the blog Social Writers, Kano said that "It was really important to me that it really made sense as an album. I didn't want it to be single driven. I really wanted it to have substance in the tracks, really wanted it to the track [sic] to mean something to me, I really wanted to experiment and make the album very exciting". He also described his progression on Method To The Maadness, as an MC from his first album Home Sweet Home. "I didn’t really know what I was doing on that album (Home Sweet Home). It's about progression with every album, learning from the last and just getting a little bit more educated and more experienced as a performer and as a recording artist, as a writer and a producer and co-producer. So, I feel I've definitely progressed".
Three singles have been released from the album: "Get Wild", featuring Aidonia and Wiley, "Upside", featuring Michelle Breeze from Why Why Peaches, and "Spaceship", featuring production from Chase & Status and additional vocals from Takura Tendayi.
The album entered the UK Album Charts at number 45 despite a strong marketing push. Jesal Padania from RapReviews.com stated that it was a "good album" but also confessed his disappointment, particularly his view that until Kano "opens up" his audience will never truly connect with the artist.
