Ghostpoet Announces New Album - Shedding Skin

Ghostpoet is pleased to announce news of his forthcoming album ‘Shedding Skin’,  2nd March 2015 through Play It Again Sam.

‘Off Peak Dreams’ the first single - already premiered on Radio One and been enthusiastically received on 6music and Xfm - sees Ghostpoet, London-based Obaro Ejimiwe moving on from the cathartic musings of 2013’s ‘Some Say I So I Say Light’ album.

The accompanying video for ‘Off Peak Dreams’ was directed by Liam St Pierre. Given a budget matching the average monthly salary in the UK, he was asked to create a film about the constraints of city living.

This music video is the result.

Artists can ordinarily spend anything between £5k - £500k on a video.

This was shot for £2068

Following a couple of low key shows at the end of January, Ghostpoet is pleased to announce details of further dates in April – with ticket pre-sale via at 09.00am on Thursday 15th January and general sale at 09.00am on Friday 16th January. The dates are:

‘Shedding Skin’ is the manifestation of a new challenge, of fresh thinking, and a brave confident stride into previously uncharted waters. Ten songs that embrace, unite and narrate observations that are designed to sit beside each other through bright peaks and dark shallows. 

Unlike his previous albums, ‘Shedding Skin’ was recorded with a traditional live set up with what has become his touring band; Joe Newman on guitar, bass player, John Calvert and John Blease on drums. The self-produced album also features guest vocals from Nadine Shah, Etta Bond, Melanie De Biasio, Lucy Rose and Maxïmo Park’s Paul Smith, a collection that sets a new precedent as his very best work yet.
