14 June 2018 (Toronto, ON) - Mura Masa is back today with his first new music of 2018, the explosive Move Me(ft. Octavian) via Anchor Point/Polydor Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. Listen to the new track HERE.


Discussing “Move Me” and his plans for 2018 for the first time today, Mura Masa (Alex Crossan) writes: “It’s been some time since I released music and I’ve been toying a lot with creating stand-alone moments rather than long-form releases. This is the first instance of letting a track be its own story and free in the world, rather than become overthought or forced into a bigger project. ‘Move Me’ came about at my studio in South London, and the first time me and Octavian actually met up to discuss music was about four weeks ago. It feels to me like a super natural collaboration, and I love what we’ve managed to do working together. In the time between now and the next LP/art project, I’d love to find more moments like this and put them onto the scene. That feels like the future to me.”


Still aged just 21-years-old, Crossan’s triple-threat influence as an artist, producer and writer can no doubt be felt across modern pop. Released only last summer, his genre-bending, critically-acclaimed debut album – in another first for his native Guernsey – was recently nominated for two Grammy Awards (including Best Dance/Electronic album). Here is a young talent equally at home collaborating with the new leading light of UK rap as he is remixing Perfume Genius, designing a fashion line, and working on the new Chic album. Crossan joined Nile Rodgers and frequent-collaborator Cosha to launch the new record on this week’s edition of Later…with Jools Holland.


Having built up a dizzying global audience – with tens of millions of streams and sold-out shows ranging from Brixton Academy to a specially-curated Manchester Warehouse project – this summer will see Mura Masa bring his joyous live show back out on the road. As he continues to work on new material, what comes next remains to be seen. “Move Me” is arguably the start of a much longer journey for Mura Masa in which that end-point is thrillingly unknown.
