SBTRKT Shares “GHOST” With Video

Following the release of returning statement “Bodmin Moor” and the fans first junglist excursion “Miss The Days” that he released just last week, SBTRKT reveals a new layer to this compelling new chapter today with the release of new single “GHOST.”Sbtrkt Shares &Quot;Ghost&Quot; With Video, Yours Truly, News, February 25, 2024

Ethereal and spacious, the latest single is a layered concoction of rasping synths and isolated vocals. LEILAH’s voice feels like a seraphic presence throughout, enhanced by scattered injections of distortion and glossy reverb. “GHOST” is prismatic and bursting with ambience, it’s a welcomed reminder of SBTRKT’s ability to create boundary-pushing and multi-sensory sounds irrespective of genre. “GHOST” is about how noisy the world feels, the fatigue it creates and as a result, shutting down and wanting to dissociate whilst withholding your state of mind.

“We started this song when I met artist and now friend Saya Gray around three years ago. This was one of the ideas that came from us linking up… Shortly after, I met LEILAH who’s also a very good friend now. We had been writing a lot together over the pandemic and co-wrote the remaining lyrics,” says SBTRKT speaking on the song’s background.

SBTRKT emerged onto the scene in the early 2010’s, going onto release two critically lauded albums. A prolific collaborator, he has worked with the likes of Ezra Koenig, ASAP Ferg, Little Dragon, Sampha, Drake, The Dream. His sound defines a generation, artfully combining elements from a multitude of genres to create undeniably groundbreaking tracks that exist on the fringes of popular music. This is merely the beginnings of a daring new chapter for SBTRKT.
