Ahead of the arrival of of John Glacier’s album Duppy Gun, UK rapper/producer and poet shares a new single and music video for “Cows Come Home.” Directed by Yasser Abubeker (Kelela, Shygirl), the music video for Glacier’s latest single stars the artist. Duppy Gun, out tomorrow on Young, and follows previous release Like A Ribbon. Glacier, hits the road for a run of North American shows, including stops in Chicago, Brooklyn, and Montreal.

“Cows Come Home” integrates elements of subwoofer-blowing rap, jungle and dancehall, while still creating space for John’s singular, intimate tone. A song that celebrates individuality, even when others don’t understand, “Cows Come Home” embodies a claustrophobic atmosphere, as if the listener is aware of the external conversations of those who conform to social constructs and pressures. “Cows Come Home” is the second single released from Duppy Gun, following ”Steady As I Am”, an autobiographical amble taken straight from the inner depths of Glacier’s psyche, written and produced by Glacier and London-based composer and producer Kwes Darko.

While Duppy Gun is the next official chapter in the diary from John Glacier, one of the UK’s most beguiling musical talents, Glacier has been quite busy since the February release of Like A Ribbon. Her enchanting single “Emotions” closed out Lacoste’s FW24 show in March. In April she performed in Milan at Miu Miu Literary Club and opened for Sampha’s sold-out Alexandra Palace show. Last month Glacier opened for Jamie xx at his The Floor residency in London also joining the lauded DJ and producer to perform a rumored new, unreleased track from his upcoming album In Waves.
