Ben Howard shares new single 'Crowhurst's Meme'

With his highly-anticipated new album set to land near the end of next month, Ben Howard has now delivered the next cut to be lifted from his forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Crowhurst's Meme' follows on from the previously shared lead track 'What A Day' in previewing his new LP 'Collections From The Whiteout', which is out on the 26th March via Island Records.

Speaking about the new offering, he said, “This song was firstly inspired by a wonky synth guitar part that I had which had a kind of seasick quality to it, which in my head had a tenuous link to the Donald Crowhurst story – the famous tale of the amateur British sailor who died whilst sailing around the world. These two things seemed to marry and so it became a sort of exploration of the undocumented universal side of the story.”
