Benny Sings releases his forthcoming release, entitled Music on April 9, via Stones Throw Records. The 10-song project features collaborations from across genres including Mac DeMarco, Emily King, KYLE, Tom Misch and Cautious Clay. Today, Benny has unveiled a new song, “Here It Comes,” with a lyric video directed by animator Sabrina Nichols. The track follows Benny’s previous single “Nobody’s Fault” featuring Tom Misch on guitar.
Benny Sings on “Here It Comes:”
“The lyrics are about me as a young boy, living on the streets in Dordrecht [a city in the Netherlands] with my skate crew, and feeling life presenting itself, and feeling excited about it. A time full of hope and bravado. My dad used to call us ‘Little Giants.’”
Music is packed with delightful surprises leaping out at every turn. On the joyous “Miracles,” Benny is joined by Emily King, Kelsey Gonzales of Free Nationals and Chance the Rapper collaborator Peter CottonTale’s gospel choir. “Run Right Back” opens with a saxophone solo from Cautious Clay. Rapper KYLE features on “Kids,” and Benny mans the ship himself on “Lost Again,” “Break Away” and “Here It Comes.”
Benny was busy in 2020 as he teased Music. This fall he unveiled “Rolled Up” featuring Mac DeMarco. The title track, “Music,” was released early last year and Benny then performed it on a rare return appearance to NPR’s Tiny Desk, at a (Home) Concert. He also unveiled “Sunny Afternoon,” written with songwriter, PJ Morton.
