DEBUT ALBUM PRAYERS & PARANOIA
OUT 27TH OCTOBER 2023
UK & IRELAND TOUR ANNOUNCED
Rising star SIPHO. releases his incredible new single, ‘LOCK IT IN (NO REGRETS)’. It is the fourth track taken from his upcoming debut album, PRAYERS & PARANOIA, following the release of ‘SOBER’, ‘ARMS’, and ‘THE CHEMICALS’. PRAYERS & PARANOIA is set for release on 27th October 2023 via Dirty Hit.
On ‘LOCK IT IN (NO REGRETS)’ – which was co-written with Paul Epworth and Joseph Rodgers – SIPHO. embarks upon an energy-fuelled multi-genre escapade, oscillating between multiple influences including funk, rock, soul, and gospel, whilst displaying his reverence for the UK’s rich history of dance music. Throughout the track, SIPHO.’s vocals are as flawless as always, adorning the track in velvety textures. It is yet another example of SIPHO.’s impeccable artistry.
Speaking on ‘LOCK IT IN (NO REGRETS)’, SIPHO. states: ‘Once again it’s a character piece, but this is almost a part of me. It’s me being an overt kind of villain. Sometimes you have to be mean – like, ‘I did this thing for myself, my bad’. It’s brash, and psychotic, and in your face, but in a classy way.’
On 27th October, SIPHO. Will release his hotly anticipated debut album, “PRAYERS & PARANOIA” via Dirty Hit. The debut record is a product of an eclectic musical palette and will see the Birmingham native channel influence from his childhood.
The album embraces the complexities of retaining hope in the face of growing and becoming an adult. The project acts as a refreshingly honest acknowledgement of self-worth, faith, insecurity, and anger, binding together to inform critical conversations on becoming an adult and living through the most complex form of humankind in history.
