UPDATE (January 12, 2020): After releasing the final single for his upcoming sophomore album titled R.Y.C., London-based musician Mura Masa, real name Alex Crossan, has now shared the visual for the track, titled “Teenage Headache Dreams.” Featuring vocals from Wolf Alice’s Ellie Rowsell, the track itself sees Crossan stepping out of his comfort zone as a producer, lending his voice to a duet with the singer-songwriter.
Within the Marcus Söderlund-directed visual for the track, an emotional, nail-biting tale of love is showcased between a male and female on what looks to be an abandoned highway. The two can be seen fighting with themselves and each other, dancing on occasion as lightning and power surges rain down on them.
You can watch the visual for “Teenage Headache Dreams” above. Mura Masa’s sophomore album R.Y.C. arrives via Polydor on January 17.
ORIGINAL STORY (January 8, 2020): British producer Mura Masa is amping up the energy ahead of the release of his sophomore album R.Y.C., out next week via Polydor/Anchor Point. Following the release of his collaborative track with Clairo titled “I Don’t Think I Can Do This Again” and the recent “No Hope Generation” featuring slowthai, the famed producer has now tapped Wolf Alice singer/vocalist Ellie Rowsell for a new cut titled “Teenage Headache Dreams.”
On the new track, Mura Masa breaks out of his mold as solely a producer, offering up a duet with Rowsell that meshes vibrantly alongside the crisp guitar-driven instrumental. The two trade lines throughout the cut, speaking on motifs surrounding suburban discomforts before resorting to a poetic spoken word outro by Rowsell.
