Ben Böhmer and Lykke Li, have collaborated on “Hiding,” the second single off Böhmer’s forthcoming studio album, Bloom, available September 27 via Ninja Tune.

“Hiding” features Ben’s lush pads and melodies, with Lykke Li’s vocals over breakbeats. “It’s a song that I’ve always wanted to write” Ben remarks on the new release. The single continues to forge Ben’s path beyond the pre-fabricated boxes that he’s been put into as an artist, earning the trust of indie royalty such as Lykke Li. A rare feature, “Hiding” is her first original collaboration since 2019.

Li has worked with U2, Skrillex, Mark Ronson and many more. who once called her the “high priestess of heartbreak and sadness.” Her music has soundtracked films, including Twilight; she has also acted in the crime thriller Tommy and Terrence Malick’s Song to Song.

Ben is fresh off several major performances, including festivals such as Sonar by Night and Electric Forest, and serving as direct support for ODESZA at The Gorge, BMO Stadium, and Madison Square Garden. Looking ahead, he’ll round out his North American tour with stops at Lollapalooza and Portola before embarking on an Australian tour, where he’ll perform in music halls across Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne. Then, he’ll head back to Europe for a string of fall shows, including a stop at the Great Hall of Alexandra Palace.

Following success of his previous records, Ben found himself being pulled in a direction that wasn’t him. Life on the road took him away from the things that mattered most to him (200+ shows in 2022). Bloom is a reset, a confident reassertion of his own desires and more improvisational origins. Ben’s composing and songwriting talents extend to the foreground alongside Lykke Li, Oh Wonder, Enfant Sauvage (of the French duo The Blaze), JONAH (who was featured on the previous single “Best Life”), and more.
