With his long-awaited debut album ‘Smiling With No Teeth’ arriving on 5th March, Genesis Owusu is getting us hyped for what’s to come, sharing new track ‘Gold Chains’.
“‘Gold Chains’ was one of the first songs I wrote for the album,” he explains. “It got me thinking about the flaws of being in a profession where, more and more, you have to be the product, rather than just the provider of the product, and public misconceptions about how luxurious that is. Lyrically, it set the tone for the rest of the album.”

Rejecting labels of any and all kinds, the genesis of Genesis Owusu is one that’s prioritising boundaryless, cathartic, inclusive excitement.
