East London singer-songwriter Murkage Dave has released his new single, “Get The Girl Save The World”, ahead of “I Don’t Do Love Songs – A Valentines Compilation” due out on 14th February. Murkage Dave embarks on his most honest chapter yet with “Get The Girl Save The World ” confronting how gender roles within society are shifting and how that can play out in relationships.

Coming off a momentous year ending in a county-wide tour, 2022 saw Murkage Dave release his sophomore album “The City Needs A Hero”, a critically acclaimed project which received support from The Face, Evening Standard and The Metro, to name a few. “I Don’t Do Love Songs – A Valentine’s Compilation” is a true, modern-day love story with Dave sharing his innermost personal feelings and laying them bare for all to see. The project includes a mixture of new and old Murkage Dave serenades and solidifies his position as a storyteller and an integral generational voice whose music remains intimate and relatable.

It is no surprise that Murkage Dave’s defiantly distinct sound – a pop blend rooted in a youth spent listening to garage and R&B but also revealing formative years in Manchester absorbing The Smiths and Joy Division – has broken new ground in British Pop and Black British identity. Along the way, he has collaborated with Caroline Polacheck, Tricky, Mike Skinner, Jaykae, Skepta, Manga Saint Hilare, to name a few and is set to drop more music than ever in the coming months. Dave has earned himself the title of ‘The Peoples Champ’ and continues to take the time to connect with his supporters on a one-to-one basis, emphasising real-world connectivity as well as digital.
