20 Feb 2020
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), which will be 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.
