Skinny Pelembe returns with new track and Brighton date

Skinny Pelembe has returned with a new track, ‘I Just Wanna Be Your Prisoner’, after the success of his debut single release for Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood label, ‘Spit/Swallow’. Drawing out new shades of his offbeat hip-hop-influenced and psychedelically-minded vision, it features low-key south-east London legends Hejira, including lead singer Rahel Debebe-Dessalegne, who joins Skinny’s vocal throughout the song, singing a dual harmony.

The singer/guitarist/producer/MC, born in Johannesburg and raised in Doncaster, signed to Brownswood earlier this year and performed at The Great Escape this summer. This single release will be followed by Skinny’s maiden UK tour in September, including a Brighton date: 26th September, at the Green Door Store.
