TUNE Ghostpoet - Freakshow
Ghostpoet releases his new single ‘Freakshow’, impacting 18th August via Play It Again Sam.
Following the announcement of his fourth album Dark Days + Canapés, released August 18th, and the unveiling of the debut track ‘Immigrant Boogie’, Ghostpoet - Obaro Ejimiwe - is pleased to announce new single, ‘Freakshow’. Brooding post-punk guitar lines provide the menacing landscape for provocative lyrics that create one of many standout moments on the album.
Explaining his thoughts around the origins of the track Ejimiwe says: “Freakshow is a kind of commentary on modern consumerism - it sums up my general sense of unease in the way we buy our emotions these days, and the unstoppable cash-driven churn we seem to be caught up in as a society”.
To accompany the album release, Ghostpoet has confirmed a full UK and Ireland tour. Key dates are: 24.10 @ Dublin, Button Factory, 28.10 @ Glasgow, Stereo, @ London, Printworks and 11.11 @ Manchester, Academy 2. See www.ghostpoet.co.uk for full listing.
