|Ghostpoet Shedding Skin Limited Vinyl LP + CD Album
· Ghostpoet is pleased to announce his forthcoming album
‘Shedding Skin’, which will be released through Play It Again Sam.
· The first fruits of the album, the track ‘Off Peak Dreams’ has already been premiered on Zane Lowe’s Radio One show and
sees Ghostpoet, London-based Obaro Ejimiwe moving on from
the cathartic musings of 2013’s ‘Some Say I So I Say Light’
· ‘Shedding Skin’ is the manifestation of a new challenge of fresh thinking and a brave confident stride into previously uncharted waters. Ten songs that embrace, unite and narrate
observations that are designed to sit beside each other through bright peaks and dark shallows.
· Unlike his previous albums, ‘Shedding Skin’ was recorded with a traditional live set up with what has become his touring band; Joe Newman on guitar, bass player John Calvert and John Blease on drums.
· The self-produced album also features guest vocals from
Nadine Shah, Etta Bond, Melanie De Biasio, Lucy Rose and
Maxïmo Park’s Paul Smith, amounting in a collection that sets a new precedent as his very best work yet.
· The vinyl format includes a copy of the album on CD.
