Most of us are much the same, whatever our perceived differences. Zoom in closely enough on the matter that makes us – our bones, blood, skin; our souls – and, really, we’re very alike. And we all go through our share of bad situations, whatever our today might encompass. But we still have another thing in common: tomorrow can be whatever we want it to be.
Shedding Skin is tomorrow, today – for its maker, it’s the manifestation of a new challenge, of fresh thinking, after a preceding album of necessary catharsis. If you think you know multifaceted musician Ghostpoet, think again. While the past is important, this singular artist’s third studio album is a brave, confident stride into previously unexplored methodologies and untapped inspiration – it’s a reboot of sorts, the reinvention and distillation of traits that have so far made the man’s reputation. Nothing here sounds like a style stuck on repeat.
