'a true original… his intense songs, autobiographical and elliptical as they are, could not conceivably be anyone else.' ★★★★★ The Guardian
Edmonton singer, songwriter and poet Benjamin Clementine has unveiled his first new music since being awarded 2015’s Mercury Music Prize for his debut album At Least For Now. Entitled Phantom of Aleppoville the track was written, recorded and produced by Clementine and follows his recent collaboration with Gorillaz on Hallelujah Money. Clementine has also announced a series of UK & European headline dates for November and December 2017, including a special appearance at Brighton Dome.
Benjamin Clementine released his debut album At Least For Now in January 2015. The album secured Clementine the UK Mercury Prize and in France the ‘Best New Act’ honours at Les Victories de la Musique, whilst in the U.S Clementine featured on the cover of the New York Times, interviewed by David Byrne. Clementine is especially beloved for his emotionally charged live performances.
