Ghostpoet is releasing his upcoming fourth album ‘Dark Days & Canapés’ next month, and has revealed another of its tracks.
The video is the second in a dystopian series by directors Zhang + Knight. A press release says it “depicts a nightmarish pre-apocalyptic world, in which pleasure seekers and average humans alike search for relief from their synthetic reality.”
Talking about ‘Freakshow’, Obaro 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.”
Ghostpoet is set to take ‘Dark Days & Canapés’ out on a UK tour later this year. The album comes out on 18th August. Watch the video for ‘Freakshow’ and view the dates below.
