Alfa Mist announces next album 'Variables', shares two new singles

On his fifth record, the East Londoner is asking: "how did I get here?"

Today, UK jazz and hip hop scene heavyweight Alfa Mist shares news of his forthcoming record 'Variables', out April 21. 

His second release via Anti- following 2021's 'Bring Backs', the fresh announcement arrives alongside two new singles lifted from the project: the dark, introspective '4th Feb (Stay Awake)', and the seven-minute free improvised 'BC'. 

Underpinning 'Variables', Alfa's fifth album in total, the East Londoner looks to get to the bottom of his journey so far with what is already being coined his most fully realised, expressive body of work to date. 

“I’ve been focused on who I am in my music, but now I’m exploring where I am,” Alfa Mist says. “I’m asking: how did I get here?”

Since the release of his first full-length project 'Nocturne' in 2015, Alfa has established himself as one of the UK’s most focused, in-demand and distinct musical voices. If today's news is anything to go by, it looks like the trailblazing Londoner is ready to add another chapter to his legacy.
