Ahead of his new album, Music, Benny Sings has released his new single “Here It Comes.” The single, released with an animated music video, is about growing up and feeling like the world is at your feet, ready for the taking. In a statement, Benny says:
“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’.”
“Here it Comes” is a breath of fresh air in a world where music is often unnecessarily complicated and multi-layered. It’s composed of chill, lo-fi hip hop beats replete with a walking drumbeat, dreamy keys, and groovy synths. The lyrics are straightforward, honest and open, and are complemented perfectly by Benny’s signature brand of quirky soul. The song is a slow-moving, easy listening soundtrack to a sun-filled weekend.
Music is out April 9th, and features collaborations from the likes of Emily King, KYLE, Mac Demarco, Cautious Clay, and Tom Misch.
