Nashville singer-songwriter Dreamer Boy has enlisted New Zealand’s platinum sensation BENEE on ARE YOU LETTING GO?. The duo premiered the track earlier this month on the final show of Dreamer Boy's North American headline tour.
The intimate and delicate track unites both artists distinctive vocal tones, floating above nostalgic sonics. At times ethereal, the track navigates communication within a relationship with a focus on self-analysis.
Speaking of the track, Dreamer Boy shares: “ARE YOU LETTING GO? was written as a SOS or smoke signal to another person. I was very lost and feeling very far from someone I loved when I wrote this and sometimes the only communication you have with that person is not clear and leaves you hoping or longing. With this song, I wanted to express that unfamiliar and bewildering place of love, of not knowing, and the uncertainty of how the other person is feeling.”
“This is a song that I really wanted to have BENEE appear on because it shows that there is someone else and she gives the other side of the story in some ways. I have loved hervocal delivery and writing for some time now and her song ‘Happen to Me’ really inspired me to reach out and ask her to join me on this song. I am so happy to share this little heartbreaker with the world and so cool to have be BENEE a part of it.” he says of his collaborator.
Arriving on Earth Day to reflect the global communal spirit he feels with people and our shared environment, Dreamer Boy;s sophomore album All The Ways We Are Together documents love and meaningful relationships, but also the effects that we as humans have on the world. Sonically, the hazy and sentimental body of work defies genre, traversing alt-pop,R&B, funk, dream folk and more, creating a unique listening experience.
