Petite Noir is to release a new 5 track EP entitled The King Of Anxiety on 19th January 2015. The lead track Chess features lyrics directly lifted from an instant-messaging conversation that Petite Noir (Yannick Ilunga) was embroiled in on the day of recording. The conversation finalised the demise of a relationship, but replaced the originally intended lyrics and birthed this track. The accompanying video was directed by Cieron Magat and was inspired by the works of Ghanaian photographer, Philip Kwame Apagya. Watch the video for “Chess” below.
The tracklisting is as follows:
1 – Come Inside
2 – Chess
3 – Shadows
4 – Til We Ghosts
5 – The Fall
Petite Noir is currently working on his debut album for release by Domino’s sister label, Double Six, in 2015.
