Ben Howard Releases 'Far Out' and 'Follies Fixture'

In what is becoming a welcomed tradition, Ben Howard has returned today with not one but two brand new singles, taken from his forthcoming fourth studio album 'Collections From The Whiteout', due out 26th March 2021. Speaking about the two new track's Ben explained on Far Out: “The song is essentially a critique of how easily people are drawn to violence and animosity without reason, just to pass the time. And ultimately how there is perhaps a simpler, more fulfilling path. I wanted it to have a very British rhyming slang feel and a Roald Dahl sense of macabre humour.  I fear my tinkering with it has made it a little more plain and serious”. Turning to Follies he goes on to say “Follies Fixture is a love song. It deals with an apathetic period of my life searching for routine in Paris.” Coninciding with the news, Ben has also announced a run of London live dates at The Royal Festival Hall on 18th and 19th September. Tickets will go on general sale from Friday 5th March via, preceded by a fan access pre-sale from Wednesday 3rd March.Take a listen to the singles below.
