Not yet reviewed.

Two-time Mercury Prize nominee Ghostpoet (aka Obaro Ejimiwe) follows up 2017's acclaimed 'Dark Days + Canapés' with a record which couldn't feel more prescient - a dystopian snapshot of the universal unease and anxiety we feel as we enter into this new decade (in lockdown mode!), an uncertain future distilled across these 10 vital tracks.

Written, arranged and produced by Ghostpoet, the album incorporates a myriad of sounds and styles anchored by the altrock sonics of his last two records and a nod to the likes of Massive Attack who he provided guest vocals for a couple of years ago.

It also features guest vocals from an eclectic mix of artists; Art School Girlfriend, Skinny Girl Diet's Delilah Holiday, SaraSara and Katie Dove Dixon. The artwork is a stunning recreation of the famous gothic painting 'The Nightmare' by Fuseli with Obaro as the stricken woman.
