2019 has been a fairly productive year so far for Australian-bred / Los Angeles-based artist Benji Lewis.
He’s already given us three stunning singles – ‘Ride’, ‘Is It Love’ and ‘Away’ – as well as two remixes of the latter by Two Lanes & Spirix, and all the while making promise of more new music coming our way very soon.
This week Benji Lewis is making good on that promise with the warm, nostalgic, summery sounds of new single ‘Fast Forward’, which has been produced by LA producer Kid Froopy, it comes with a beautiful Chris Weigen directed music video, and its also just the first taste of a brand-new Benji Lewis ep that is titled, “Here, Then And Now”.
“This song is about getting out of a certain state of mind. Not wanting to think about or look at a current situation, relationship or particular person right now. We are never really stuck, and my subconscious was telling me this while I wrote the song. I was feeling like some much-needed alone time and craving change. I was listening to a lot of H.E.R. and Sabrina Claudio at the time. I’ve always loved rnb music and that’s just what we ended up creating with this one. It feels sexy, natural and honest to me.” – Benji Lewis
