Ben Howard has unveiled the video for his brand new single ‘The Fear’, which will be released on the 5th December through Island Records. The video for ‘The Fear’ was shot at Ben’s recent sold-out show in Falmouth, Cornwall on the 10th October.
‘The Fear’ follows recent singles ‘Old Pine’, ‘The Wolves’ & ‘Keep Your Head Up’ and is taken from Ben’s recently-released Top 10 debut album, ‘Every Kingdom’.
Ben heads out for a series of sold-out shows in Europe this month before returning to cap 2011 with a handful of further UK dates in December and February 2012. These include two headline shows at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire.
It has been an extraordinary year thus far for Devonshire singer-songwriter Ben Howard. He released his EP, ‘Old Pine’ through Communion Records back in the spring, and just six months later has been celebrating his debut album entering the UK album charts at #7.
And yet ‘Every Kingdom’ is a record that young Ben Howard has been brewing within himself for at least a couple of years. And it’s such careful attention to detail, with tight, homespun harmonies and folk-informed arrangements, that could only have been fully realised after relentless road-testing of the songs on stages across the UK and Europe. 2012 will be his year!
