Mura Masa has today premiered explosive new single ‘Deal Wiv It’ (with slowthai) – and you can listen to it on the Shoot Music New Releases playlist on Spotify.
Premiered as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World and taken from his much-anticipated second album, ‘R.Y.C’ (Raw Youth Collage) – released on January 17 – ‘Deal Wiv It’ follows first single ‘I Don’t Think I Can Do This Again’ (with Clairo) and the project’s lyrical centrepiece, ‘No Hope Generation’.
Full of urgency, anger, and caustic humour, ‘Deal Wiv It’ is a timely anthem of defiance set to the timeless influence of Britpop, Punk, and UK rap (all given Mura Masa’s thrillingly modern twist). The track is another culture-colliding moment for the Guernsey-born artist/producer and Northampton-based MC, who first collaborated on the Mercury nominee’s breakout track ‘Doorman’, and reunite alongside Deal Wiv It’s iconic one-shot video (filmed in a speeding car in Serbia).
Despite the odds, Mura Masa’s endless desire to learn and push himself further has led to where he finds himself on ‘R.Y.C’ (Raw Youth Collage): a still-just-23-year-old, who has already won a Grammy, been shortlisted for an Ivor Novello, appeared on Forbes’ 30 under 30, and shifted more than half a million units of his debut record. Here is an artist able to channel those highs and lows of youth culture, and use it to expand what pop music should sound like today. Because even when interrogating the past, Mura Masa sounds like the future.
