Two years on from the release of his Mercury nominated debut, ‘Peanut Butter Blues And Melancholy Jam’, Ghostpoet aka Obaro Ejimiwe releases ‘Cold Win’ - the second single from his sophomore album ‘Some Say I So I Say Light’ which came out May 2013 through Play It Again Sam.
‘Cold Win’, which Ghostpoet describes as "almost a flagpole or mast for the record". Originally intended as a homage to old-school garage, it morphed into an electronic oddity that builds up gradually with cinematic swells of horns, although skipping, staccato beats remain as a hint to the track's origins. It's not the only song that shapeshifts, ending up somewhere completely different to where it started.On ‘Some Say I So I Say Light’, which was co-produced with Richard Formby (Wild Beasts, Darkstar, Egyptian Hip-Hop), Ghostpoet’s talent starts pushing the boundaries. Fresh from his UK tour, he recently announced various summer festival dates including Lovebox, Wilderness and Bestival. Check here for tour dates: www.ghostpoet.co.uk
