Mura Masa Mura Masa CD
‘Mura Masa’ will be released on July 14th on his own imprint of Anchor Point (via Polydor/Interscope Records). Mura Masa has conquered the festival circuit and sold out three headline European tour as well as launched a mixtape series (AP Sound) and radio shows. He has also just been nominated for his first Ivor Novello Award.
‘Mura Masa’ is set to feature an extraordinarily diverse cast-list; ranging from Damon Albarn, Christine & The Queens and Charli XCX to A$AP Rocky, Desiigner, Jamie Lidell, A. K. Paul, and affiliates of Alex’s own Anchor Point family (like Nao, Bonzai and Tom Tripp). Featuring acclaimed early singles ‘Firefly’, ‘What If I Go?’, ‘Love$ick’ (Double Platinum) and ‘1 Night’, ‘Mura Masa’ – says Alex - captures “the confusion and chaos of being 20 and living in London for the first time.” The trial and errors of youth are all here, but drawn together by the importance of togetherness, and the challenge to connect (however isolated your upbringing, messy your love life, or busy your city). Digging into a dizzying array of musical subcultures, at the centre of it all is a young Guernsey singer and producer barely out of his teens, whose hard work and innate curiosity has led to the point of curating an album alongside lifelong heroes, cult figures, and emerging talent. The results are a work of coherence, variety, and vitality – it is, quite simply, ‘Mura Masa’.
