Ghostpoet releases new single, announces tour dates

By | Published on Thursday 20 April 2017


Ghostpoet has released new track ‘Immigrant Boogie’, as well as announcing tour dates for this autumn.

“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”, says the musician of the new song. “It 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”.

He continues: “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”.
