Reading-based artist, Songer, shows there is no time to slow down where there is talent concerned as he releases his “THE PRICE OF THERAPY” mixtape. The project lands following chart-topping success and the sell-out of his biggest UK headline tour.

The 8-track body is undeniably his best work to date which see’s Songer push his own personal sonic boundaries. Following on from the incredible chart-topping success of his previous hits, including “Toxic (Freestyle),” which peaked at 29 on the UK charts as the hottest UK rap track ahead of huge releases from fellow UK rappers Central Cee , Skepta, Unknown T and AJ Tracey, with each release Songer continues to solidify his position as one of the most versatile and sought-after artists in the industry.

“THE PRICE OF THERAPY” is a reflection of Songer’s deep introspection and exploration of the power of music as a therapeutic outlet. With poignant lyrics and infectious beats, the mixtape delves into the struggles of mental health and the healing process through music. It’s a thread that runs through much of his work, perhaps most notably in his 2023 “SKALA” album, which achieved Top 30 UK albums chart, #1 UK Hip-Hop album and has surpassed +19M streams, and his 2021 mixtape, “The Sunrise Project”, which Songer still says is his favourite thing he’s made. As Songer himself puts it, “writing music is a coping mechanism,” and this sentiment shines through in every verse of the song.

Sonically, the project is a testament to the Reading rapper’s metamorphic power. Homing huge old school hip-hop beats in focus track “WIDE AWAKE”, to James Blake-esque production in “FIND PEACE”, “THE PRICE OF THERAPY” unravels with each track taking on its own unique personality, meanwhile, maintaining the highest degree of quality of rap lyricism. The chameleonic nature of the project is a remarkable reflection of Songer’s ability to straddle a multiplicity of genres, yet remain consistent in his own lane.

Reflecting on the new release, Songer says; “The Price of Therapy is a project about coming to grips with the positive and negative consequences of using music as a form of help. It’s a balance of highs, lows, honesty and hyperbole, to express the challenges of acceptance. The music fluctuates between vulnerability and braggadocio, all with the underlying tone of beauty. I wrote it to maintain an honest relationship with my music, and so I can always associate future successes or failures with the most authentic version of myself. It’s a body of work to reflect who I am as a person, as well as an artist.”

Songer’s remarkable ascent stands as a testament to his genuine artistic prowess. Garnering the accolade of being named the top artist by 15,000 listeners on Spotify Wrapped 2023, Songer’s trajectory over the past year has been nothing short of impressive. His following and streams have nearly doubled, reflecting a deep and meaningful connection with an ever-expanding fan base. With each new release, Songer consistently pushes the boundaries of his craft while remaining true to his origins, delivering authentic and heartfelt music that strikes a chord with audiences across the globe.
