Ghostpoet Announces New Single 'Cold Win' Released 26th August 2013

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 almost imperceptibly, ending up somewhere completely different to where it started.

On 'Some Say I So I Say Light', which was co-produced with the talented Richard Formby (Wild Beasts, Darkstar, Egyptian Hip-Hop) we see Ghostpoet's talent has truly blossomed and that he's pushing the boundaries even further in all directions.

Fresh from his UK tour, which included a sold out Village Underground Ghostpoet announces various summer festival dates including Lovebox, Wilderness and Bestival.
