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 instalment of a series of songs to pre-empt the album and follows the well-received ‘Immigrant Boogie‘ and ‘FreakshowOpening 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.
