Kwazulu-natal born, multi-disciplinary artist Desire Marea (born Buyani Duma) was a founding member of Johannesburg collective FAKA. As FAKA Desire Marea and creative partner Fela Gucci toured the world extensively making their American debut scoring for the brand Telfar at NYFW and partnering with Versace to soundtrack their S/S 2019 menswear show before being included in the Vogue World 100 and Dazed 100 lists.

Debut solo album Desire is an exploration of loss, displacement, and the terrifying manifestations of love in the contemporary world. The expansive exploration of spirituality and the divine is palpable, and skillfully interlaces snapshots from decidedly grounded human experiences. It serves as a captivating introduction to their singular and multi-faceted world.

The album, with artwork by visual activist Zanele Muholi who recently had their first major UK exhibition at the Tate Modern, was originally released digitally on Desire’s own imprint Izimakade Records early in 2020. Now it will be available on CD and vinyl for the first time on via Mute.
