Genesis Owusu is back with his latest single, “The Other Black Dog,” along with the long-awaited announcement of his forthcoming debut album Smiling With No Teeth, out March 5, 2021.
The Ghanian-born, Australia-based artist is becoming renowned for a maverick presence and an ability to conjure powerful storytelling in diverse forms, as he embraces a winding sonic path of his own. Genesis Owusu’s new single puts a name to the inner and outer demons he lives with, the ‘black dogs’ that form his existence–a notion to become familiar with on his debut album, Smiling With No Teeth.
The song unleashes cinematic verses and a charging dance energy that brings his story to life. Razor-sharp quips punch throughout, building intensity to a heady climax before an abrupt shift welcomes a rich, soulful breakdown. Watch “The Other Black Dog” below.
