Ghostpoet Shares New Track “Nowhere To Hide Now”

Today Ghostpoet is pleased to share new track “Nowhere To Hide Now”, which is taken from his new album I Grow Tired But Dare Not Fall Asleep, that will be released through Play It Again Sam on May 1st, 2020. Listen to it HERE.
Nowhere to Hide Now” is a blast of tense, alt rock driven by Obaro Ejimiwe’s idiosyncratic vocals and rangy, jagged storytelling, fueled 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.  The two-time Mercury Prize nominee Ghostpoet (aka Obaro Ejimiwe) follows up 2017’s acclaimed Dark Days + Canapés with a record which couldn’t feel more prescient, a dystopian snapshot of the universal unease and anxiety we feel as we enter into this new decade, an uncertain future distilled across these 10 vital tracks.
Recorded in London and written, arranged and produced by Ghostpoet, I Grow Tired But Dare Not Fall Asleep incorporates a myriad of sounds and styles but is anchored by the more alt-rock sonics presented across his last two records. It features guest vocals from an eclectic mix of artists; Art School Girlfriend, Skinny Girl Diet’s Delilah Holiday, SaraSara and Katie Dove Dixon. Obaro has always had a keen ear for collaboration, having worked with the likes of Massive Attack, Nadine Shah, Melanie Di Biasio, Maximo Park’s Paul Smith and Damon Albarn’s Africa Express amongst others across his distinguished career.
