The track follows the release of the musicians acclaimed single, War In Your Arms
Award-winning Australian singer/songwriter Ben Abraham has unveiled the second taste of his sophomore album with the release of Requiem. The musicians forthcoming record is set to document a rebirth in the wake of loss and pain.
The guitar-led confessional track places Abraham's warm and smooth centre stage, with vivid lyricism capturing moments of introspection whilst navigating a loss of innocence. The release is accompanied by an official visual, shot in New York City. Created by Derec Dunn, Steven Salgado & Violeta Boix, the clip captures the thematic threads present within the track.
Speaking of the track, Abraham shares: “I used to be a leader at my church in Melbourne but I made a mess of things in a pretty big way. There came a day I was made to sit in a room full of people and confess my sins. Somehow the experience was both traumatic and euphoric — it became a huge turning point in my life. And that’s when I wrote Requiem.”
Abraham's 2014 debut album Sirens, was met with critical acclaim, which prompted a re-issue in 2016 which featured collaborations with Sara Bareilles and Gotye. Since then, the musician has gone on to write alongside some of the biggest names in contemporary music, most notably co-writing Kesha’s RIAA-certified double-platinum, Grammy Award-winning smash hit Praying.
