Genesis Owusu Premieres New Song “Tied Up!” on BBC Radio 1
Ghanaian-Australian Genesis Owusu premiered a new song “Tied Up!” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Jack Saunders on July 11, 2023.
The song is the second single off of his upcoming sophomore album “STRUGGLER”, which is set to be released on August 18, 2023.
It was written by Genesis Owusu, Sol Was and Kofi Owusu-Ansah. Produced by Sol Was and Henry Was. The accompanying music video was directed by Lisa Reihana.
Genesis Owusu told Jack Saunders about the song, “That's exactly what it's about, man. I feel like this album 'STRUGGLER' at number two, all about finding your way navigating through like absurd and confusing wold. This song is kind of about maybe, you know, we can't control what's on the outside, but we can always try looking into it to change our perspective and our mentality about how we move forward.”
He continued, “Life has been so fast paced, and so hectic, it's been a big change in in gears that I've had to get used to. There's been a lot of glitz and glamour from the outside looking in. But like the song I think it's about looking inwards and maybe trying to shift perspectives a bit. Always trying to look for the positive and the way that just keep moving forward.”
- The new album comprises 11-track, produced by Jason Evigan, Jeff Gitelman, and Smile High.
He said of the album, “That's kind of what I've always used music for. I think it's always just been a way to get things off my chest. I think that's kind of power I've learned to communicate when these kinds of things get a bit heavy. I think whatever I put up a large body of music. It's me opening up more and more.”
