Following his 2015 album "Studio" and years of international collaborating with amongst others Rex Orange County ("Lovin is Easy") and Mayer Hawthorne ("Cosmic Love") Benny Sings returns with the exciting new release "Beat Tape"
"Beat Tape" compromises tracks, demos and sketches from Benny Sings' archive, all of which have never been released before. He says: 'Stuff that was never used, but still kinda nice and fun to release!
While all music is written and produced by Benny Sings, the compilation features two artists: Dutch rapper and long-time collaborator Faberyayo (De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig) appears on 'Nakameguro' and Benny Sings' daughter is given a small role on 'Chance Ben 1'. The artwork is done by Japanese illustrator Ryu Okubo.
"Beat Tape" is a teaser for Benny Sings' forthcoming studio album, scheduled to be out this fall. BEAT TAPE is out now, released via Sings Records.
