Having recently surpassed a landmark 1.5 billion streams across the globe, acclaimed US singer-songwriter Alec Benjamin is back with new single, ‘Demons’ – the first to be released from his highly-anticipated debut album, which releases later this Spring.
Recently announced as the official support for Lewis Capaldi’s upcoming UK Tour, Alec will also make his Coachella debut in April, ensuring that 2020 picks up exactly where 2019 left off. As well as the unprecedented global success of breakout single ‘Let Me Down Slowly’ ft. Alessia Cara – his first UK Top 40 and Gold-certified record – Alec captivated UK audiences with his emotional and hyper-relatable songwriting all year-long, selling out memorable London shows at both Shepherd’s Bush Empire and Electric Ballroom.
‘Demons’ – a tender, introspective new cut – now marks the first taste of what fans can expect from his debut artist album, following recent singles ‘Mind Is A Prison’, ‘Jesus in LA’ and ‘Must Have Been The Wind’. Watch the official ‘Demons’ visualizer HERE.
With fans in Billie Eilish, Bryson Tiller, Kevin Abstract (Brockhampton) and childhood idol John Mayer, Alec has also recently returned from his first ever World Tour. Spanning over 30 dates, it saw him take in an extensive run of shows across the UK, Europe, North America and Asia, where BTS member Jimin sparked a worldwide trending moment on Twitter after uploading a photo with Alec at his show in Seoul.
Hailed as “a pop story-teller for the next generation” by TIME, 2020 is already shaping up to be Alec’s biggest year yet.
