Ghostpoet will release new album Shedding Skin which will be released on March 3rd 2015 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 album.
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 Maximo Park’s Paul Smith, a collection that sets a new precedent as his very best work yet.
