The two-time Mercury Prize nominee Ghostpoet (aka Obaro Ejimiwe) follows up 2017s acclaimed ‘Dark Days + Canapés with a record which couldnt feel more prescient,  a dystopian snapshot of the universal unease and anxiety we feel as we enter into this new decade,  an uncertain future distilled across these 10 vital tracks.

The bluesy, gritty Concrete Pony is the perfect entry point to the record  in Obaros own words; Its a snapshot of where were at as a society I feel, we seem to have everything and nothing at all. Infinite possibilities and choices galore but we seem set in stone, frozen in place, oblivious to the storm clouds in the distance¦

The video, shot by Thomas James, acts as a brilliant companion piece.  With its distinctly Lynchian feel, surreal, foreboding and beautifully cinematic, it is a must watch.

Recorded in London and written, arranged and produced by Ghostpoet, I Grow Tired But Dare Not Fall Asleep incorporates a myriad of sounds and styles but is anchored by the more alt-rock sonics presented across his last two records.  It features guest vocals from an eclectic mix of artists; Art School Girlfriend, Skinny Girl Diets Delilah Holiday, SaraSara and Katie Dove Dixon.  Obaro has always had a keen ear for collaboration, having worked with the likes of Massive Attack, Nadine Shah, Melanie Di Biasio, Maximo Parks Paul Smith and Damon Albarns Africa Express amongst others across his distinguished career.
