Ghostpoet – London-based Obaro Ejimiwe – is back with a new self-produced album titled ‘Shedding Skin’ which will be released on 2nd March 2015 via Play It Again Sam. ‘Off Peak Dreams’ (released 23rd February), is the first positively exquisite slice from the ten song album.
Directed by Liam St Pierre, on a budget matching the average monthly salary in the UK, the music video to accompany the track shot for £2068, it recounts vividly the constraints of city living…
‘Shedding Skin’ is the fruit of a new challenge and fresh thinking, and a gutsy stride into previously uncharted waters…Through bright peaks and dark shallows.
The album was recorded with his touring band; Joe Newman on guitar, bass player, John Calvert and John Blease on drums. And features guest vocals from Nadine Shah, Etta Bond, Melanie De Biasio, Lucy Rose and Maxïmo Park’s Paul Smith.
