Desire Marea

Debut album ‘Desire’ Set for Vinyl and CD Release – 6 August 2021





Today Durban, South Africa-based artist Desire Marea announces the release of their debut album, Desire, out 6 August 2021onMute.

Along with the announcement, Desire has shared a new video for single Tavern Kween – a track that was inspired by Desire’s aunts who would go against convention to find freedom and empowerment in the usually male-occupied taverns in their hometown of Amandawe.

‘Tavern Kween’ on YouTube:

Desire comments: “It’s an ode to them, an ode for defiance and feminine manifestations everywhere, an ode to people who come alive at night, to people who enjoy being free and also an ode to people who are fierce about claiming their freedom.”
Video director Allison Swank adds: “This video is a tribute to all of the Tavern Kweens that lived dangerously before us, especially the queer icon Lebo Mathosa. It’s a statement of gratitude to those that survive and thrive now. It’s a love letter to the free and fierce future Kweens we hope to inspire. 

Kwazulu-natal born, multi-disciplinary artist Desire Marea (born Buyani Duma) was a founding member of Johannesburg collective FAKA. As FAKA Desire Marea and creative partner Fela Gucci toured the world extensively making their American debut scoring for the brand Telfar at NYFW and partnering with Versace to soundtrack their S/S 2019 menswear show before being included in the Vogue World 100 and Dazed 100 lists.

Debut solo album Desire is an exploration of loss, displacement, and the terrifying manifestations of love in the contemporary world. The expansive exploration of spirituality and the divine is palpable, and skillfully interlaces snapshots from decidedly grounded human experiences. It serves as a captivating introduction to their singular and multi-faceted world.

The album, with artwork by visual activist Zanele Muholiwho recently had their first major UK exhibition at the Tate Modern, was originally released digitally on Desire’s own imprint Izimakade Records early in 2020. Now it will be available on CD and vinyl for the first time on 6 August via Mute. 

The standard vinyl is white with lyric booklet, while the Rough Trade edition is clear vinyl in a PVC sleeve and comes with a limited edition 4 track CD ‘Desire Marea Nezimakade (Live at Alliance Française Ethekwini)’.
