Recently, Ben followed the widespread acclaim for his third album, Noonday Dream, with three brand new tracks all written and recorded during the sessions for his third album.
One of the new songs, 'Hot Heavy Summer', features a collaboration with American electro-pop duo Sylvan Esso.
The recording sessions for Noonday Dream were so varied and over quite a period of time. There were little gems that we didn't know what to do with but it felt right to put these 3 together, both separate and a part of the album so to speak.
Amelia (Sylvan Esso) is just incredible, fortune prevailed, and we managed to get in the studio. I had it in the back of my mind as soon as we initially recorded Hot Heavy Summer that the track just felt right for her.
A blissful blend of electronics, psychedelic pop, subtle strings and dreamily delivered lyrics…Headphones on the beach, ahoy!The Sunday Times
