LISTEN: Benjamin Clementine - 'Jupiter'

Benjamin Clementine has released Jupiter, the latest single to be taken from his upcoming record I Tell A Fly, the follow up to his Mercury Prize winning record of 2015. This new track was inspired by a U.S visa issued to Benjamin, where he was described as "alien" - shocking in an age of supposed equality. About the track and the experience, Benjamin writes that "here I was thinking I was living in a safe place, but nothing was really safe any more, or ever. It’s a poke at people being called aliens by some people, like we’re from another planet. I think we’re all forever aliens." The record was written, recorded and produced by Clementine himself in Damon Albarn's Studio 13 (following his Gorillaz collaboration earlier in the year), and is set for release on 15th September - pre-order it here!

Benjamin Clementine heads out on a UK tour later in the year, taking in Brighton, Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, Gateshead and Bristol, as well as a O2 Academy Brixton show on 5th December - tickets for those and his other European dates all here
