Savannah Setten Addresses Gender Neutrality in Ghostpoet’s ‘Woe Is Meee’

06.11.2017 - Posted by : James Campbell

Following his Top 40 success with fourth album ‘Dark Days + Canapés‘, released in August, Ghostpoet has unveiled his video for new track Woe is Meee’.

Directed by Savannah Setten, it features a brief cameo from Obaro (Ghostpoet). The idea behind the video was as she explains;Depicting the darker, emotional response I had to the track led me to build a world around an atypical senior citizen (played by John O’Brien) who at 70, finding himself in a society openly discussing gender neutrality, chooses to address his deepest most insular struggles around sexuality and persona.

A blues laden highlight from the album, ‘Woe Is Meeeenlists Massive Attack’s Daddy G on guest vocals, providing a dark and sinuous turn amidst the stripped back musical arrangement. Daddy G’s brooding presence compliments Ghostpoet’s captivating delivery and together allow the listener to dive deep into the gulf between fantasy and reality.
