Mura Masa has finally released his new album, RYC.
“Those three words, madly, came to me a couple years ago before I even knew that I wanted to do an album about nostalgia—looking backwards to look forwards,” Mura Masa, real name Alex Crossan, told Dazed.
“It started being the working name of the record and I workshopped it loads, tried to take words out, put words in, change it completely, but it just kind of stuck,” he added. “It’s a description of what a person’s memories of their childhood are—a weird, unfiltered patchwork of happy and sad memories. That’s what a ‘raw youth collage’ is to me.”
