Speaking on his upcoming new album, Snow said: “I approached [the album] light heartedly from the point of view of making a short film through music. I always loved Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. I watch it all the time. I thought of Baw Baw Black Sheep like a soundtrack to it. I put the movie on with my album, and they synced up perfectly.
“I tried to tap into all of these feelings. The music is really colourful, and the lyrics are often happy, because that was my state of mind.”
The album includes Snow’s 2020 collaboration with the late MF DOOM and Cam O’bi, ‘Cookie Chips’.
