Today, sees the release BERWYN’S new single for “MIA”. His first single to be released, since his second mixtape TAPE2/FOMALHAUT “MIA” sees BERWYN’S signature blend of storytelling come alive over tight drummer boy snare rolls and sweeping synths. The track, (co-produced by BERWYN and Fred again..) finds him battling with insomnia, eulogising the friends he’s lost on his journey so far. His spontaneous and immediate lyrics detail a long look over his shoulder at the harder times that have led up to this point.
Over the past year, Trinidad-born, Romford-raised rapper/producer BERWYN has released two full length mixtapes, countless cinematic videos, sold out his debut UK tour and had his debut release ‘DEMOTAPE/VEGA’ nominated as one of the 12 Hyundai Mercury Music Prize Albums of the Year, the first ever mixtape to be included in the selection.
Berwyn on “Mia:”
“This song means the absolute universe to me. It’s a dedication to all the missing pieces that aren’t here anymore. I titled it MIA because it does what it says on the tin, it’s a time to think and to honour the people that aren’t with us now…and to acknowledge the fact that there is still a lot of violence outside. Performing this song comes like walking through a gate to the other side feels mad spiritual, not sure why.”
