Mura Masa, a British singer and producer, is preparing to release his third studio album, “demon time,” which he teased on Twitter after “bbycakes” and then officially announced via his email list before “blessing me.”
The concept of “demon time” arose from the following question: “How do we score the time between 1am and 5am, when people do stupid things they don’t regret but wouldn’t do again if they could?” The musician anticipated that people would require “vicarious, escapist music now” due to the pandemic’s pain and suffering.
Masa explores “big themes and nuanced subcultures” in “blessing me,” producing enthrallingly futuristic pop. “Demon Time” takes place in “the hedonistic world,” and “blessing me” is a follow-up.
Throughout his adolescence, Mura Masa experimented and worked with music of various genres. He then began to concentrate on electronic music. When he was 17 years old, Zane Lowe and Annie Mac played his song “Lotus Eater” on BBC Radio 1.
More recognition came from his 2015 EP Someday Somewhere and 2014 mixtape Soundtrack to a Death. Mura Masa, his debut album, was released in 2017 and featured songs by British pop singer Charli XCX and American rapper Desiigner.
