‘Immigrant Boogie’ marks the first new material from Ghostpoet since the release of his Mercury-nominated Shedding Skin third album back in 2015. The track also heralds news of a full UK tour in the Autumn – see below for tour dates.

Ghostpoet aka Obaro Ejimiwe explains: “It’s a first person account of a difficult journey across borders, partly intended to ask those who have questioned the arrival of refugees in recent times what they would do in the same situation. The song is written in two halves – the first hopeful for a brighter future, while the second sees hope snatched away by forces beyond the control of the storyteller. There is an important story to be told there, but I wrote the song in a way that aims to capture a broader human truth: that while we are all working for a better life for ourselves, we have to accept that we are not in control of the outcome.”
