Description

FUTURE UTOPIA (AKA Fraser T Smith) addresses twelve of the most profound and urgent questions of our time over the course of this 52-minute masterpiece.

The questions are born of the artist's own anxieties concerning faith, freedom, race, gender, wealth, equality, ecology and are posed to thinkers, artists, activists and visionaries including poets Simon Armitage, Arlo Parks, actor Idris Elba, , as well as Fraser's long term collaborators Stormzy, Ghetts, Bastille, Kano and Dave.

Also featuring Bastille Mikky Ekko, Shoreditch rapper and poet Kojey Radical, Tom Grennan, Tia Carys, Alysiia Harris, former Black Panther Albert Woodfox, and artists Katrin Fridriks and Es Devlin.

Future Utopia's genius is in music that seduces the senses, transports the listener emotionally so that by the time the next questioning voice arises, your heart has opened your mind to listen.

In Fraser T Smith's own words: Faith in whatever capacity is in lots of ways our only lifeline. The first strands of faith can turn into a small piece of frayed floss that then becomes a piece of string, that then becomes a rope, that then becomes an anchor, that then becomes something more concrete that you can always turn to.

When I ask Fraser one of his own questions: What happens next? He responds:

We learn to connect again, we learn wholeness and oneness, we learn to care for ourselves and then we can care for other people, and realise that social inequality is the work of ego. Egos diminished, universal one love. We live in a future utopia together.
