Knomad Spock is delighted to announce the release of his sumptuous new single ‘Egypt’ which is out now, giving the second taste of his sublime and ambitious forthcoming debut album scheduled for release in 2021 via Hinterland Creative.
Commenting on the single, KS says: “Egypt is a rework of an earlier song recorded at the Warren with Stew (Baxter, LIFE) almost a decade ago. The riff that plays throughout links both songs, but the vocal harmony, lyrics and arrangement have been brewing in the years since. The burst into free jazz belongs to producer Jamie Smith’s vision, and this track is a classic example of our creative partnership and the dynamics we both bring. The song is an elemental response to depression in both lyrical and musical dimensions.”
“In these very brief and succinct lyrics is also an extended metaphor for the creative process that produced this album, which was always concerned with the means—the end was the unconscious gift.”
Knomad Spock is an enigmatic mixed-race British-Somali poet, rapper and new folk singer-songwriter, who explores musical genres as extended analogies for his own multi-ethnic heritage.
