On the eve of the release of his fourth album Dark Days + Canapés through Play It Again Sam on Friday 18th August, Ghostpoet today shares new track Dopamine If I Do.
The track, its title a thought provoking play on words is the latest installment of a series of songs to pre-empt the album and follows the well-received Immigrant Boogie and Freakshow.
Opening with a dark foreboding Dopamine If I Do features Ghostpoet, aka Obaro Ejimiwe, contemplating and contrasting the idealistic vision of our hyper-connected world with the epidemic of isolation it is responsible for.
As he explains; “I wrote this one for any minds struggling to make sense of an increasingly connected but lonesome world.”
The track features singer-songwriter EERA, whose cut-glass Nordic tones offer the perfect foil to Obaro’s string accompanied doom-noir.
Dark Days + Canapés is available on ltd white vinyl, standard vinyl, CD and download and available to order HERE.
