Poté has announced his forthcoming album A Tenuous Tale of Her - the debut album to be released on Bonobo's OUTLIER label - and has recruited Damon Albarn to feature on the lead single "Young Lies".

"Young Lies" marks Poté's first release since performing album track "Open Up" for COLORS last month, and sees the Paris-based artist collaborate with Damon Albarn.

The new collaboration came about through Gorillaz producer Remi Kabaka Jr. Albarn says of the song, "I love it when tunes evolve like this one".

Poté previously worked alongside Albarn on the 2019 Africa Express album EGOLI. Albarn co-founded the UK-based non-profit organisation that facilitates cross-cultural collaborations with journalist Ian Birrell.

The artist relocated to Paris in 2019, and has already worked with the likes of Kojey Radical, Ghetts, Muzi, Moonchild Sanelly, Arctic Lake and more.
