Barney Artist shares smooth must-listen album single “Rose Thorn” ft Dornik

Marked as the second single from his debut album, “Rose Thorn” sees East London lyricist Barney Artist lead us up to his new LP, “Home Is Where The Art Is,“. Creating some magnificent music over the years with talents of a similar stature, including EmmavieAlfa Mist and more, the laid back rapper gives listeners a little more of what’s to come with this lo-fi summer record.

Speaking on the track, Barney Artist tells The FADER:

Rose Thorn is one of my faves from the album! I wrote this song after me and my ex broke up… plays violin it’s pretty much a representation of my love including all the ups and downs! I was so happy to get my boy Dornik on it he’s absolutely incredible and nails the vibe completely!! This one should be played on a hot day with a lovely cider.. LOUDLY”

A killer chorus, soulful adlibs and some top tier lyricism is always a guarantee with Barney. He may just be the only artist that has perfectly blended his influences of hip-hop, 90s boom bap, jazz, UK Rap, neo-soul and electronic music. “Rose Thorn” is produced by Kostral One & Robb Wybrow.
