Some news from Ben Woods! Firstly, he has released his bewitching new single for Wearing Divine. Listen/watch below:

Wearing Divine channels 60's bubblegum psychedelia in contrast with gritty lap steel guitar and machine sounds. This grit churns at the song's core, dislodging and reframing its simple beauty. It's the second single to be released from Woods' upcoming album, Dispeller, out July 15th through Melted Ice Cream (NZ) / Shrimper (USA) / Meritorio (EU/UK). 

Woods notes, “The song started as a nod to classic American singers like Brenda Lee and Patsy Cline. Allowing myself to reach for that level of desperation they get to through simple narratives. After bringing Lucy and Marlon in and layering it up, it started to push against that, in this woozy, dark kind of way. And it gave the song a whole different light — which I love.”
