Ben Howard releases his new single 'Old Pine' on the 6th August and last night premiered a brand-new Everything Everything remix of the track on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show.
'Old Pine' has been a live favourite of Ben Howard since the release of his debut album 'Every Kingdom' last year. Click on the following links to watch the single being performed live last year for Watch Listen Tell & Bands In Transit & last month on Later w/ Jools Holland.
Following the 200,000+ sales of his top 10 debut album 'Every Kingdom' in the UK alone, two sold-outs tours of the US and contemplating a hectic summer of festival appearances ahead of his biggest UK tour to date, Ben finds himself positioned as one of the most successful young singer-songwriters from the UK and Europe in years.
'Old Pine' is a woozy, languid song, both cathartic and quietly euphoric. A long-standing live favourite, Ben's percussive perfection is matched with the driving intricacies of his guitar playing and smoky controlled voice.
Originally released in the spring of 2011 as an introductory EP through Communion Records, 'Old Pine' has already played a crucial part in introducing Ben to a bigger, broader audience. He has since played to over 80,000 thousand fans at over 120 sold out performances. His UK tour later this year has now sold in excess of 50,000 tickets alone, culminating in three sell-out nights at London's Brixton Academy.
Ben Howard's music harks back to a classic and comforting time of old, albeit with a forward-thinking method of guitar performance. 2012 has very much been his year, with over six months of it still to enjoy.
