Video Premiere: Ghostpoet - Woe Is Meee

The enigmatic artist delivers a new visual that blurs the lines between fantasy and reality.


Fresh off a glowing reception towards his fourth studio album Dark Days + Canapes, Ghostpoet has tayed true to character and reemerged with a sprawling new visual. A blues laden highlight from the album, 'Woe is Meee' enlists Massive Attack's Daddy G on guest vocals; providing a dark and sinuous turn amidst the stripped back musical arrangement. The music is translated into the visual, which documents the plight of an elderly man on the edge.

Speaking to Dummy, the video's director, Savannah Setten, said: "Depicting the darker, emotional response I had to the track led me to build a world around an atypical senior citizen (played by John O'Brien) who at 70, finding himself in a society openly discussing gender neutrality, chooses to address his deepest most insular struggles around sexuality and persona.”
