New Zealand’s platinum sensation BENEE has shared her first taste of new music for the year with Beach Boy. The track is set to appear on the singers forthcoming EP, LYCHEE, due out next month. Produced by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sia, Beck), the laid-back tune explores the juxtaposition of longing for a relationship, whilst also finding solace in being alone.
“Beach Boy is pure fantasy, set in LA. It’s about being happy alone, but still wanting some love; wanting the thrill without the pain. It was the first time I’d worked with Greg Kurstin, and it was so sick...we got on super well, and I love this track...I think it is perfect for cruising down the freeway with the top down :)” the singer shares of the track.
Set to begin on March 18 in Hobart, BENEE's Australian tour will continue on to the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide, before wrapping up at Sydney's Luna Park Big Top on April 7. Along for the ride is Kenyan-New Zealand artist Muroki, the first artist BENEE signed to her label, Olive Records.
