LISTEN: Benedict Benjamin - 'Tell Me If You're Lonely'

Benedict Benjamin has shared new single Tell Me If You're Lonely, the latest track to be taken from his upcoming second album Truant (due for release May 3rd.) The track sees a sixties-esque guitar refrain and slightly psychedelic vibes soundtracking a desire for irresponsibility with the track's closing line "I feel stuck in my life, if you feel the same come on by, I would like something better to do." Much of the record explores Ben's experiences after the birth of his daughter and the joys and challenges of parenthood, and on this track he describes it being "a song about longing to be irresponsible and do stupid self indulgent shit because you don't feel good about yourself. I think it was on my mind because we were expecting a baby and I was aware that I couldn't do that anymore and it freaked me out."
