After sounding revitalised in his recent team-up with Tion Wayne on “Deluded”, Birmingham rapper Mist is back with “Cemetery Walks”, an introspective cut that delves into the losses of loved ones.
Over an mellow yet uplifting production, Mist opens up as he tells us about his experiences with losing his mother, father and his grandparents. Despite the sombre, heart-tugging subject matter, Mist’s self-described “new energy” shines through on this song. In the accompanying visuals from Dir. Lx, he can be seen performing the track in a cemetery on the way to visit his family—steering away from the lavish visuals we’re used to seeing from him, Mist shows a different, dare we say softer side to him for the first time in a while.
