LISTEN: Benjamin Clementine - 'God Save The Jungle'

Winner of the Mercury Prize in 2015 for his debut album At Least For Now, Benjamin Clementine is back with news of its follow up, I Tell A Fly. Following its first track, Phantom of Aleppoville, he has released God Save The Jungle, a track alluding to the notorious camp in Calais. Speaking about his role as an artist, Benjamin says that "I am neither a politican nor prophet, but an artist who creates to only entertain is no better than a con" and hopes that the album "fulfils its purpose as the continuation from 'At Least For Now'". Pre-order the new record here.

Benjamin Clementine tours the UK in November/December as part of an extensive run of European shows, including a headline show at Brixton's O2 Academy as well as shows in Brighton, Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, Gateshead and Bristol. Full dates and ticket info are on his site here!
