Video of the Moment #2468: Ghostpoet

Back in the summer, Ghostpoet released his fourth album. Never shy to step into the political fray, ‘Dark Days + Canapés’ was previewed by the refugee-themed single ‘Immigrant Boogie’. His latest music video, this time for ‘Woe is Meee’, is less about what’s been repeatedly splashed across the broadsheets as of late and more on something far more personal.

The twice Mercury Prize-nominated Obaro Ejimiwe explains the new promo’s premise: “Depicting the darker, emotional response I had to the track led me to build a world around an atypical senior citizen (played by John O’Brien) who at 70, finding himself in a society openly discussing gender neutrality, chooses to address his deepest most insular struggles around sexuality and persona.” Sometimes the biggest battles are those within. Food for thought. Watch the new video below. ‘Dark Days + Canapés’ is now available from PIAS. For much more here on TGTF on Ghostpoet, use this link.
