Mura Masa Shares Video For “Teenage Headache Dreams” Feat. Wolf Alice's Ellie Roswell

Boundary-pushing and genre-blurring British producer Alex Crossan, who goes by the stage alias Mura Masa, is stepping into new direction with his sophomore album R.Y.C. The upcoming album is slated to move the producers famed pop, hip-hop and electro sounds to incorporate a more post-punk and new wave influence. With a release date set for Friday, January 17 (via Geffen Records), the producer-songwriter Mura Masa shares his final offering, a video that accompanies his latest single “Teenage Headache Dreams,” featuring singer Ellie Roswell of Wolf Alice.

The latest single, alongside prior released tracks “I Don’t Think I Can Do This Again” featuring Clairo and “No Hope Generation” featuring slowthai, exhibit and highlight the intertwined roles of the young producer-songwriter and now lead-vocalist.

“Teenage Headache Dreams” delves into a mesmerizing, poetic duet set over a dreamy, electronic pop melodies contrasted with strong guitar riffs that encapsulate the albums central themes of nostalgia, memory, youth and hope. The singles sound and visuals leaves much anticipation for his upcoming release.

Commenting on the overall message of the album, the producer believes the album represents “the fact that ‘it’s possible to feel happy even if it means relying on something that isn’t necessarily true, or is half-imagined, or might not even have happened at all. If we can find a shared remembrance of a good time, we’re more likely to be able to find that again. A little bit of escapism is healthy.’

Mura Masa is also set out to embark on a global headline tour in 2020. You won’t want to muss a show as it’ll be the first performances to include a live band. Full dates are listed below and on-sale now at
