Dark Days + Canapés out this Friday on Play It Again Sam via [PIAS]

On the eve of the release of his fourth album Dark Days + Canapés on Friday August 18 on Play It Again Sam via [PIAS]Ghostpoet today shares new track “Dopamine If I Do“.


The track, its title a thought provoking play on words is the latest instalment of a series of songs to pre-empt the album and follows the well-received “Immigrant Boogie” and “Freakshow“. Opening with a dark foreboding “Dopamine If I Do” features Ghostpoet, aka Obaro Ejimiwe, contemplating and contrasting the idealistic vision of our hyper-connected world with the epidemic of isolation it is responsible for.

As he explains; “I wrote this one for any minds struggling to make sense of an increasingly connected but lonesome world.

The track features singer-songwriter EERA, whose cut-glass Nordic tones offer the perfect foil to Obaro’s string accompanied doom-noir.

This is a statement of real substance.

Stunning second full band outing from savvy, sharp-eyed London chronicler.

It might well be his most musically bold but thoughtful album to date.
