Ghostpoet Announces New Album Some Say I So I Say Light

Ghostpoet Announces New Album Some Say I So I Say Light

Two years on from the release of his Mercury nominated debut, 'Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam', Ghostpoet announces his sophomore album 'Some Say I So I Say Light' which will be released on the 6th May 2013 through Play It Again Sam.

Obaro Ejimiwe, aka Ghostpoet, laughs when he remembers how Gilles Peterson "took a risk on a random maverick" back in 2010 by signing him to the Radio 1 DJ's Brownswood imprint. Within a year, that risk paid off: Ghostpoet's debut album, Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam, marked him out as one of the most distinct, uncategorisable and forward-thinking voices to emerge in British music this decade, and it was rewarded with a surprise Mercury Prize nomination in 2011.
