Today Ghostpoet announces his new album ‘I Grow Tired But Dare Not Fall Asleep', released through Play It Again Sam on May 1st. Alongside this he shares a first taster of the record, “Concrete Pony”, accompanied by a visionary, mind-bending video.



Watch “Concrete Pony” video here



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.

The bluesy, gritty ‘Concrete Pony' is the perfect entry point to the record - in Obaro's own words; “It's a snapshot of where we're at as a society I feel, we seem to have everything and nothing at all. Infinite possibilities and choices galore but we seem set in stone, frozen in place, oblivious to the storm clouds in the distance…”



The video, shot by Thomas James, acts as a brilliant companion piece. With its distinctly Lynchian feel, surreal, foreboding and beautifully cinematic, it is a must watch.



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.



Ghostpoet will debut songs from the new album at BBC 6 Music Festival where he plays London's Dingwalls, March 8th. Tour itinerary below and more dates to be announced soon.

Sunday March 8th - BBC 6 Music Festival, Camden, London
Saturday May 2nd - Live At Leeds, Leeds
Friday July 24th - Deer Shed Festival, Topcliffe, Yorkshire
