Benjamin Booker Shares New Track “Right On You” via Fader

Benjamin Booker Shares New Track "Right On You" via Fader HEADLINE NYC SHOW CONFIRMED AT ROUGH TRADE NYC 6/5

Headline NYC Show Confirmed at Rough Trade NYC 6/5

This morning Benjamin Booker shared “Right On You,” the white-hot psych-punk opening track from his upcoming LP ‘Witness’ (6/2 on ATO). Booker describes the song as being “about the selfish, lonely and hedonistic nature of modern life, where death is ‘right on you’ but seems ‘hard to imagine’.” Listen now via Fader: http://bit.ly/2osgvF8 

 

Ahead of a full nationwide tour later this year (to be announced soon), Booker has also confirmed a headline set at Rough Trade NYC on June 5th. Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 21st. Purchase here: http://benjaminbookermusic.com/tour.html

 

On ‘Witness,’ Booker has crafted his most ambitious artistic statement to date – drawing on everything from William Onyeabor’s 70s African psych-rock to the writings of James Baldwin to Freddie Gibbs. The album’s title track – featuring guest vocals from Mavis Staples – earned early raves from Rolling Stone, NPR Music, the NY Times + more.
