MURA MASA ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM
DUE OUT JANUARY 17, 2020
UNVEILS NEW TRACK
“NO HOPE GENERATION” TODAY
CONFIRMS 2020 WORLD TOUR
“There’s a world of plink and ping in the songs of Mura Masa…He’s a denizen of an interconnected planet, with… a world of instruments and sounds to draw on, and a confident craftsman’s sense of what to include and what to leave out. His songs also understand that no system can contain or predict the vagaries of the human heart” —The New York Times
“[Mura Masa]’s sonic and visual output feels like an homage to a young, queer, diverse London that we’d all like to believe is the future.” —Interview
R.Y.C (Raw Youth Collage), the highly anticipated second album from Grammy-winning, producer, songwriter and vocalist Mura Masa, is set for release January 17, 2020 on Geffen Records. Alongside today’s album announcement comes a brand new track, “No Hope Generation”—listen here.
“This project is intended to explore the kind of necessity of nostalgia and escapism that I’ve noticed in my own life, but moreover in the lives of my friends and peers,” says Mura Masa. “If the story of the album is an exploration of the questions around that need, then ‘No Hope Generation’ is the explanation for that need. It’s meant as an anthem to anxiety, but also an acknowledgment of the tongue in cheek approach that most people my age have to the universal struggles of coming of age in the twenty-tens.”
Led by critically acclaimed first single “I Don’t Think I Can Do This Again” with Clairo earlier this fall, R.Y.C features guests including slowthai, Tirzah, Ellie Rowsell of Wolf Alice, Georgia and Mura Masa himself stepping out as lead-vocalist.
Fresh from headlining Manchester’s Warehouse Project, Reading and Leeds festival and gearing up for next week’s Pitchfork Paris, Mura Masa confirms details of a global headline tour for 2020 – including dates at London’s Alexandra Palace, Boston’s House of Blues, Philadelphia’s Union Transfer, Washington’s Fillmore and New York’s Brooklyn Steel. Full dates are listed below and pre-sale is live now here https://www.muramasa.me/, general on-sale begins November 1.
Recorded over the past year in London and beyond, R.Y.C explores the music Mura Masa—23-year-old songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Alex Crossan—grew up listening to on the tiny, remote British isle of Guernsey. He pays homage to and inverts new wave, punk, folk and 90s rave, thoroughly investigating nostalgia as a concept.
Spiritually, R.Y.C addresses a generational addiction to nostalgia, and its uses (and limits) as means of coping with the difficulties of the present. Influenced by Derrida’s concept of hauntology, it explores the irony that in times of increased urbanization and digitization, somehow it’s never been easier to feel lonely. For Mura Masa, it’s only once we accept nostalgia as a permanent fixture—a fact seemingly embodied by the cyclical phases in which different subcultures, political movements, fashion trends, even musical genres wax and wane—that we can start to learn from it. Why do we keep going back? How reliable is memory? And if your youth—and its assorted musical scenes—will always appear rose-tinted in the rear-view, then perhaps your present is there for the taking, after all.
Known for his ground-breaking, boundary-pushing production, Mura Masa has already won his first Grammy Award (and been nominated for two more, notably as first artist in history to be nominated as both a musician and creative director for the same album), been shortlisted for the Ivor Novello Awards, appeared on Forbes’ 30 under 30, and surpassed 500,000 worldwide sales of his much-acclaimed debut album. Along the way, Crossan has also collaborated and shared stages with artists as disparate and acclaimed as A$AP Rocky, Christine & The Queens, Charli XCX and NAO, and been an early celebrator of Slowthai, Octavian, Koffee, Perfume Genius and many others. Widely critically acclaimed, The FADER praises his “boundless pop songs,” while NPR lauds his debut LP as “a feast of sounds and flavors” and i-D calls it “explosive.”
