Kojey Radical has just dropped a new track following “Open Hand” from a few moths ago. His latest song titled “Blind Eye”, a collaboration with the mysterious Frank Gamble connects in an instant and continues to grow more melodic and insightful upon every listen. The song delves into the issues in the Middle East “I pray for peace on the borderline” he laments over the evocative backing.
Speaking with I-D magazine about the record Kojey explained, “The artists I love and respect are the ones that painted a picture of the times they live in. I think it’s easy to sometimes forget the power and effect of music. The injustices suffered in the world can often make you feel helpless, and I’ve always felt I could do more with my artistry. I’m thankful I grew up in such a melting pot of culture because it allowed me to listen and learn and appreciate different perspectives. I wanted to put a sense of compassion in my art and give something for all generations to listen and appreciate. Frank Gamble and I simply invite you all to love, overall.”
Kojey has announced his next live show that will take place on January 28th at Oslo, tickets are now on sale.
