Benjamin Francis Leftwich announces new album 'To Carry A Whale'

Following on from the release of his highly-praised 2019 LP 'Gratitude', Benjamin Francis Leftwich has now announced his plans for a new studio album, arriving in the coming months.

The new full-length 'To Carry A Whale' is the first by Leftwich written and recorded entirely sober, a state he has maintained since spending 28 days in rehab in January 2018; is being previewed by the new lead single 'Cherry In Tacoma', and is set to be released on the 18th June via Dirty Hit.

Speaking about the new record, he said, “It’s an observation on what it’s like to be a sober alcoholic addict a couple of years in. A whale is heavy to carry. It’s gonna hurt you to carry it. But it’s also beautiful, and it’s a miracle to be able to carry all that at all.”

Cherry In Tacoma
Oh My God Please
