TRACKLIST


SCHEDULE

Ahead of the album drop, Ben&Ben have unveiled their comeback schedule which includes a Spotify Pebble House Tour and "Special Collaboration Announcement."


In an interview with Bandwagon, Ben&Ben revealed that they wanted to explore themes and stories outside of the realm of love, and shared how they will be diving into more topics that cover the emotional spectrum of daily life. 

"We hope that the totality of those layers is something that our listeners embrace because more than anything else, we want to be with them in the different parts of their lives through our music," said Ben&Ben.

Sonically, the band shared that the record will feature tracks that showcases more of each member's unique influences and sound. 

“In terms of the arranging process, we tried a different approach to all of the songs. Each of us arranged one song in the album, so each of us is a co-producer of a specific song. You could expect some of the songs to be quite different from each other,” teased the band.

This will come as Ben&Ben's second album following their LIMASAWA STREET in 2019.
