Mura Masa has confirmed details of a huge global headline tour for 2020 – including a massive London date at Alexandra Palace on 20th February in celebration of the announcement of his much-anticipated second album, ‘R.Y.C’ (Raw Youth Collage), released on 17th January.
‘R.Y.C’ is an ambitious and exciting left-turn from an artist and producer whose ability to always surprise is matched only by his remarkably consistent, singular vision. Breathing new life into – amongst other things – New Wave, Emo, Folk and 90s Rave – tracks like ‘No Hope Generation’ reinvent Mura Masa’s sound whilst also paying tribute to the alternative roots which shaped him when he first became a genuine musical outsider, growing up in the remote island of Guernsey.

Alexandra Palace is a charity, run for the benefit of everyone. Our Park, Palace and spectacular events have been enriching lives since 1863, but the coronavirus pandemic has hit us hard. To be blunt, we are looking at a £1m shortfall this year and the same again next year. We know this time has been hard on many people but, if you can afford it, your support will help us get through this crisis.
