Towing The Line is the second track to be lifted from Ben’s forthcoming third album, Noonday Dream.
It follows the recent unveiling of A Boat to an Island on the Wall, the first new music that Ben and his band have shared since the release of his number 1 charting second album, I Forget Where We Were, in October 2014. It welcomes in a new full length record, Noonday Dream.
Listen To Towing The Line HERE
Noonday Dream was recorded in numerous studios between South West France and South West England, including Sawmills. It was produced by Ben.
Towing The Line is a dusty, hazy, melody-heavy lament, introducing a different mood altogether from the previous offering A Boat to an Island on the Wall.
The transformation and development in Ben’s writing from his hugely successful debut LP back in 2011, to the immersive darkness of 2014’s I Forget Where We Were, and now on the cusp of another new sonic phase in Noonday Dream, could and should cement his status as one of the UK’s most gifted and unpredictable artists.
Ben will perform live throughout 2018 with his sprawling six piece band. Dates listed below. Virtually all dates sold out upon announcement last week.
