Owusu is currently on his Australian tour in support of ‘Smiling With No Teeth’, which was released in March featured the singles ‘The Other Black Dog’, ‘A Song About Fishing’ and ‘Don’t Need You’.

Last month, Owusu released a Mick Jenkins remix of ‘Don’t Need You’, which featured a new verse from Jenkins.

NME‘s cover star back in February, Owusu explained that the lyrical concept of the two black dogs which appear throughout the album, representing depression and racism.

“Obviously, I knew of the black dog as a metaphor for depression,” he said, “But then it struck me – I’ve literally been called a black dog in my life with the racial slur connotation.


“The reason I chose these two concepts is they’re ideas that have been weighing on me for such a big portion of my life. It’s a see-saw, they’re both co-dependent on each other a lot of the time.”
