I really like this new video from Ghostpoet – (Obaro Ejimiwe).. although a little harsh dude… ‘he just ain’t the one man you just know init..’ was the lyrical highlight for me. Ha. Anyway.. it’s the new single, the wonderfully titled ‘Sorry My Love, It’s You Not Me’ for release on 31st July through Play It Again Sam.
What’s the video about? A reflective narrative sees Ghostpoet weave tales of a one-night stand, articulating the awkwardness, hand in hand with wanting something more meaningful. Cohabiting with cinematic instrumentation and featuring guest vocalist, singer/songwriter Lucy Rose, ‘Sorry My Love…’ walks the same emotive, self-questioning axis that permeates his recent album, ‘Shedding Skin’ to great effect.
