The dark, swaggering "Freakshow" links up with "Immigrant Boogie" and "Trouble + Me" to preview Dark Days & Canapés - the follow up to 2015's Mercury-nominated Shedding Skin LP. Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, Jon Hopkins) is on production duties.

"'Freakshow' is a kind of commentary on modern consumerism," explains Ghostpoet, aka Obaro Ejimiwe. "It sums up my general sense of unease in the way we buy our emotions these days, and the unstoppable cash-driven churn we seem to be caught up in as a society."

Zhang + Night have directed the video, which was shot in China and the UK - it's the second in a "dystopian series" that also includes lead cut "Immigrant Boogie".

Ghostpoet will be heading out on tour around the UK and Ireland this autumn, with shows at London's Printworks and Glasgow's Stereo confirmed. Find out more.
