Ghostpoet announces new single ‘Nowhere to Hide Now’

April 17th, 2020

The perfect soundtrack for our queasy, unsettled times, Ghostpoet releases the new track from his forthcoming album “I Grow Tired But I Dare Not Fall Asleep”, a dark, disturbing porthole into a roiling underworld, where paranoia reigns supreme.

Premiered this morning on Lauren Laverne’s 6Music show, “Nowhere to Hide Now” is a blast of tense, alt rock driven by Obaro Ejimiwe’s idiosyncratic vocals and rangy, jagged storytelling, fuelled by fear, exhaustion and anger. More than simply becoming a purely cerebral exercise however, the end result is visceral and alive, a potent reminder of just how unique and essential a talent Ghostpoet is.

“I Grow Tired But I Dare Not Fall Asleep” is the much anticipated follow up 2017’s acclaimed ‘Dark Days + Canapés’, a record which couldn’t feel more prescient, a dystopian snapshot of the unease and anxiety we feel as we enter into this new decade, an uncertain future distilled across these 10 vital tracks.
