Ghostpoet has announced that he will release his brand new album Shedding Skin on March 2nd.
With news of Ghostpoet’s third full-length comes a first taste of what to expect from the album, in the shape of ‘Off Peak Dreams’, the LP’s opening track. Following on 2013’s Some Say I So I Say Light and 2011’s Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam, the new LP is said to be one of change, manifesting new challenges and a new way of thinking, and ‘Off Peak Dreams’ shows that in spades. It’s a warm and intimate offering that sets the scene for his instantly identifiably poetic lyrical stride, musing and observations that have marked his work from day one. However his everyday chat of ‘mugs of tea’ and ‘bacon sarnies’ are mumbled to a backdrop of a classic guitar-bass-drums formula. It’s not exactly a drastic overhaul, rather an gentle evolution that ultimately brings out something different and invigorating.
March 2nd is still some while off but now’s time to acquaint oneself with the marvellous ‘Off Peak Dreams’.
