2020 release. Nominated twice for the Mercury Prize, Ghostpoet's fifth album, I Grow Tired But Dare Not Fall Asleep, is the soundtrack to a world in a state of flux. Edgy, hypnotic and at times eminently groovy, he pushes his five-piece band further into alt-rock territory while remaining deeply connected to his indie sensibilities. Obaro has always had a keen ear for collaboration, having worked with the likes of Massive Attack, Nadine Shah, Melanie Di Biasio, Maximo Park's Paul Smith and Damon Albarn's Africa Express, amongst others, across his distinguished career. I Grow Tired But Dare Not Fall Asleep features guest vocals from an eclectic mix of artists including Art School Girlfriend, Skinny Girl Diet's Delilah Holiday, SaraSara and Katie Dove Dixon.
