PREMIERE: OMAR MUSA SEARCHES HIS SPIRITUALITY ON NEW SINGLE ‘OH CHILD OF MINE’
Rapper, author and poet Omar Musa shares his first single in four years titled ‘Oh Child of Mine’.
Following the release of his latest poetry and woodcut art book Killernova, the Australian-Bornean artist’s return to music is one of personal regeneration. Produced by Paperboy and recorded with Citizen Kay, ‘Oh Child of Mine’ sees Omar explores his spirituality in a fearless open letter over profound piano keys.
“This song is about how rock bottom doesn’t necessarily have to be a trapdoor, but can be a trampoline.”
Written during his musical hiatus, the resilient new single connects the lessons we pass on to our children as well as the ones we learn from them. Exclusively premiering via AUD’$, the music video directed and shot by Harry Hunter with VFX by Oscar Brooks-Luscombe. Rich with flowers and petals, the visuals are influenced by the 2012 indie-adventure video game Journey that Omar started playing during the COVID-enforced lockdowns.
As his first single since his ‘About Me’ track alongside Birdz in 2018, the NSW-based, multi-hyphenate artist delivers intimate bars tucked between the sweet and softly-sung hook. Coinciding with the release of ‘Oh Child of Mine’ and his late-2021 book, Omar Musa is headed on tour from June to October visiting cities in Indonesia, Malaysia, UK, Netherlands, Germany, Canada and Nigeria.
“I hope that it gives listeners the strength to face their own fears, demons, and addictions. I’m so proud of it.”
