It’s all heating up for Remi once again with the rapper announcing a headline tour and dropping a new song of his forthcoming album.
Remi will play five dates around the country in May in addition to his sets at Groovin The Moo, no doubt showcasing some new material including this new single.
He premiered For Good on triple j this evening, the first single from his forthcoming sophomore record Divas And Demons due later this year. The track features newcomer Sampa The Great who Remi described as his “favourite rapper in the southern hemisphere”.
“She came in the 25th hour with a Superman cape on, recorded her verse, hook , and back-ups in under half-an-hour,” he said about her.
As for the album, he told triple j‘s Linda Marigliano that it’s far more “introspective” than his debut raw x infinity.
“The last one was much wider, broader topics whereas this one deals mostly with myself: relationship stuff,” he said.
“I was going through a break-up and thought it was important to get this stuff out on music, especially as a vocalist. It’s very much a diary – a timeline in your life and you’ve gotta get this shit out.”
We can expect the record just after the tour around June or July according to the man himself.
Check out the dates for the tour and his new single below. He’ll be supported on the tour by Man Made Mountain who are signed to Remi’s label House of Beige Records.
