Far Out’s August just got a whole lot better with the news that one of our favourite artists will treat us to a highly-anticipated new record.

Obaro Ejimiwe aka Ghostpoet has announced that he will release his fourth album Dark Days + Canapés on August 18th via Play It Again Sam (PIAS).

If the wait has already got you drowning in suspense then fear not, as he has also unveiled ‘Trouble + Me’, the second track to be premiered from the LP, following ‘Immigrant Boogie’, which landed last month.

Listen to the new single ‘Trouble + Me’ below.

The track continues down the same experimental path that was found on Ghostpoet’s last album Shedding Skin, which saw Ejimiwe veer away from the beat-infused production on his first two records, instead favouring a towards more woozy, distorted guitars.

Ghostpoet explains: “Serendipity and experimentalism were embraced in the studio and several original ideas evolved or were supplanted by something unexpected. There’s a sort of life-force that the other musicians brought to this record, and that was crucial. I want people to listen to the songs and be able to say, ‘So it isn’t just me then? Phew.’”

In addition there’s a full tour of UK and Ireland scheduled, beginning in Dublin at The Button Factory on October 24th, right through to Bristol’s Marble Factory on November 14th.

Have look at the tracklist and watch the video for ‘Immigrant Boogie’ below. Head here to read Far Out’s exclusive interview with Ghostpoet from his Shedding Skin tour.
