New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Accomplished singer-songwriter Ben Haenow has revealed the full details of his highly anticipated second album 'Alive'. The record, which is set for release on the 25th May, is now available to pre-order worldwide.
By addressing themes of love and aspiration, the album promises to be Ben's most authentic body of work to date. The former X Factor winner shines a mirror on his soul with each and every song.
With the exception of two covers, the retrospective tracks were written in their entirety by Ben and his brother Alex Haenow.
Speaking about the forthcoming release of his new album, Ben Haenow said: "I'm sooo buzzing for people to finally hear the new album and songs! This album definitely feels more honest in style and lyrical content compared to the first album. In some respects, with some of the tracks, it is a bit more autobiographical and a chance to tell a little more of my story with all that's happened the last three years.
It's special to me as all the tracks were written by me and my brother which I'm very proud of! There are a few tracks which might surprise people too; be that a good or bad thing lol. We have experimented a little style-wise with a few tracks but the reaction to the new stuff when we played a few at live shows has been great. I really hope everyone likes the album, it's my first independent release so a little scary but also very exciting!"
Ben's sophomore album will consist of nine original songs and two covers. His unique renditions of 'Ain't No Sunshine' by Bill Withers and 'Always On My Mind' by Elvis Presley will both feature on the record.
The collection will include all four of Ben's independently released singles: 'Alive', 'Forgive & Forget', 'Rising' and 'Falling Down'.
Since its release, the title track 'Alive' has accumulated over one million streams on Spotify and that figure continues to rise daily.
