FULL-LENGTH WITNESS OUT JUNE 2 via ATO Records
This morning, Benjamin Booker shared a new track “Believe” – the soaring centerpiece off his upcoming album ‘Witness’, out June 2 on ATO. The track just premiered via TIME Magazine and chatted with Booker about the new project. Read/listen HERE.
To accompany the new track, Booker has also shared a stunning live video of him performing the song at Providence’s historic Columbus Theatre earlier this spring. Direct link HERE
This new song is the third to be released off ‘Witness’, his biggest artistic leap to date – drawing on everything from the writings of James Baldwin to Freddie Gibbs to William Onyeabor’s 70s African psych-rock. The album has scored early praise from Rolling Stone, FADER, NPR Music, the NY Times + more:
• “Witness” (feat. Mavis Staples), via NPR Music
• “Right On You”, via FADER
Booker will headline a special release-week show at Rough Trade NYC on June 5, in addition to festival appearances at Austin City Limits, Moontower, and a supporting show at The Greek Theatre with Portugal. The Man in July. More dates to come!
