It's been a year and a half since Clara Benin announced she was going on a live music hiatus, but that hasn't stopped the singer-songwriter from coming up with new material and performing for selected shows every now and then. From a collaboration with producer CRWN to opening for Oh Wonder, Benin made sure she always had something to share with her fans. (Here's Team Clara Benin on the best thing about being a Clara Benin fan.)
Clara Benin released her latest single, 'Parallel Universe' at midnight (11/24) and #paralleluniverse became the number 1 trending topic on twitter by 2:30 AM.

Fans and musicians alike, have been raving (or crying) about the new song, especially the bittersweet lyrics.
In a parallel universe, maybe you'd be my first... I could be your only one, this universe is a curse. Why is timing so cruel to us? I don't know how to be alright, don't wanna live in a world where you are not mine 💙 #ParallelUniverse 😭 @clarabeninmusic— Keiko Necesario (@KeikoSoundsLike) November 23, 2017
