The EP’s three pensive and melancholy tracks each explore the feeling of being caught up between the ‘old world’ to and the new, feeling a loyalty to the traditions of the past, but unable to fully embrace the value system of the present.

Iconic progressive rock vocalist Robert Wyatt meanwhile sings and contributes tenor horn on the title track ‘Ibrahim’.
As Gerald explains: ‘Robert liked a jazz album I made 3 years ago. He gave it as one of his ‘albums of 2013’ in an interview. I frequently hear his voice in my head when I’m writing, so I wrote to him and asked if he’d consider it and fortunately he did.’
The EP is set to be released on Gerald’s own label The Interrupting Sheep on 19th September.
