Yolngu rapper, dancer, artist, and actor Baker Boy has announced his highly anticipated debut album, Gela. Alongside the announcement, the musician has shared a taste of the record with the release of his collaboration with G Flip, My Mind.


The joyous track serves as a tribute to the influential women in both artists lives, with both Baker Boy and G Flip offering captivating vocal performance atop sonics that will have you grooving along. Speaking of the collaboration, the musician shares: “working with G Flip was a real privilege, we've known each other for a while through touring, but it was mad to see them in their element in the studio. G is a real talent, not only their voice, but their song writing is like no other! My Mind is a fun tribute to the incredible women in both of our lives, we're both really lucky to have incredible support networks so really it's a song for those people too!' “



G Flip adds, "I've always been a big fan of Danzal. We met on the festival circuit over the years and our time slots were always back to back, so we’ve had a lot of hang time and a lot of beer time together!! I’ve even jumped up and played drums on a track with him before so a song collab was always on the cards. We met up at the studio sometime in 2019 and ‘My Mind’ was written in a day, it’s a song about appreciating the beautiful women in our lives. 🏳️‍🌈 "


Due out this October, Gela is set to showcase an introspective glimpse into the musician, with the albums title representing his "skin name, and one of the truest markers of his identity." Across fourteen tracks, the record features friends and collaborators Lara Andallo, Jerome Farah, Thando, the revered Uncle Jack Charles and notable co-writers Dallas Woods and Rob Amoruso with Jerome Farah, Pip Norman, and Willie Tafa producing tracks off the album.



“It feels like it has been a really long time in the making, but I'm glad I took my time because it is a much better body of work for it! ‘My Mind’ featuring G Flip, is a sign of the fun, party vibes that people expect from Baker Boy, but there are definitely some surprises on the album that I am most excited about people hearing!“ the musician teases of the full-length release.


Gela is out October 15. Listen to My Mind below.
