BERWYN Announces Debut Album ‘WHO AM I’

It's September 12th...

BERWYN has shared details of his debut album ‘WHO AM I’.

The songwriter has something truly special – a magnetic live artist, his two previous mixtapes (including the Mercury Prize nominated ‘DEMOTAPE/VEGA’) won outstanding critical acclaim.

Out on July 12th, ‘WHO AM I’ takes this a step further. His eagerly-awaited debut album, it’s a 13-track statement, a song cycle with provocative intimacy.

New song ‘DEAR IMMIGRATION’ is a powerful spoken word creation, with BERWYN’s pen pushing back against the mainstream narratives often thrown at immigrants in this country.

Unpicking self-hatred learned during his experiences with the authorities, BERWYN is able to finally look at himself in the mirror and witness his own truth. “You make me feel like a fugitive and runaway”, he says on the song, before adding, “you make me look at the mirror in horror, you took my tomorrow…I want you to know since I was nine I felt like a crime, I used to imagine you coming for me every day of my life”.
