L.A. Salami, hailing from South London and boldly adopting the title Intergalactical Troubadour, has propelled himself into the celestial heights with the deluxe edition launch of his highly praised 2022 album, OTTOLINE: The Directors Cut (Deluxe). Brace yourselves, music aficionados, for a sonic journey that spans the universe of folk, rock and roll, neo-soul, hip hop, and all the interstellar vibrations in between.

This interstellar opus not only delves into Salami’s 2020s sound but propels listeners into an uncharted realm of musicality. The 18-track stunning work includes fan-favorites from the original release, complemented by five brand-new tracks that add an extra layer of celestial intrigue for fans to devour.

At the heart of this sonic universe lies the focal point, THE TALISMAN. A character that has weaved through Salami’s creative tapestry since the late 2010s, ‘THE TALISMAN’ takes center stage as the anthem of self-discovery. According to Salami, this cosmic entity is a colossal version of himself residing at the edge of time and space—a being who has navigated the labyrinth of existence, making all the right choices and absorbing life’s profound lessons. THE TALISMAN is a celestial guide urging us to embrace the journey, no matter the cosmic lows encountered.

Salami ​states: “THE TALISMAN is is a giant version of myself that lives at the end of time and space after he has made all the right decisions and learnt all the right lessons.”

Lookman Adekunle Salami, the musical maestro behind the moniker L.A. Salami, has been an enigmatic force since 2012. Signed to Sunday Best Recordings & Domino Publishing, Salami burst onto the scene in 2014 with the EP The Prelude, setting the stage for a meteoric rise. Burberry sought his sonic mastery for their SS/14 Menswear campaign, BBC Radio 1 heralded him as ‘a future star,’ and Esquire Magazine crowned him one of the ten Most Stylish Men In Music. Through years of live shows and an ever-expanding online presence, Salami has cultivated a devoted following.

Now, with OTTOLINE: The Directors Cut (Deluxe), L.A. Salami once again invites listeners on a cosmic pilgrimage through his artistic universe.

As the Intergalactical Troubadour, he reaffirms his position as a boundary-pushing, genre-blurring luminary, leaving an indelible mark on the musical cosmos. Prepare to embark on a journey where time, space, and sound converge in the unparalleled brilliance of L.A. Salami.
