Ghanaian-Australian artist Genesis Owusu, born Kofi Owusu-Ansah, continues to traverse a mighty year of break-out highs, from making his national late night television debut in January on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to sweltering sold-out live shows and festival performances across America and Europe, and now through to his current Australian tour run supporting Tame Impala. recently, Owusu dropped single, “Get Inspired,” which is now available now via OURNESS / AWAL.

“Get Inspired” was produced by Dann Hume and Andrew Klippel and features a series of siren-like guitar wails, jutting bass notes and Kofi’s inimitable lyrical jabs. Offsetting a menacing and poetic punk hybridity is Owusu’s infectious falsetto breakdown midway through the piece before a driving rhythm resumes. The new song follows his recent single and video “GTFO”

in July, Owusu returned to North America for performances at Lollapalooza festival in Chicago, Osheaga Festival in Montreal, This Ain’t No Picnic Festival in California and Austin City Limits. He also supported Khuranghbin in Austin alongside Thundercat, and joined Glass Animals for a string of shows hitting Nashville, Toronto and Cincinnati.
