Buzzing Australian singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Eddie Benjamin has released his new single, “Only You” featuring Alessia Cara today. The emotional song finds both artists entertaining in hypnotic harmony, serving as a perfect taste test of his upcoming debut studio album, due out soon. Arriving alongside a Machine Operated-directed video, which perfectly captures the essence of the song, “Only You” can be heard now below.
Earlier this week, Eddie gave fans a taste of the song via a special performance for Vevo DSCVR. Vevo’s DSCVR series alerts music fans to the most promising new talent every week of the year, which has featured everybody from Sam Smith to Billie Eilis. Watch Eddie perform “Only You” and “Weatherman” HERE.
“All of the songs are pretty life-shifting experiences I’ve gone through,” says Eddie of his upcoming album. “I wanted to tap into actual meaning within the art. This body of work represents the most monumental and meaningful moments for me, and I just had to get them out.” It wasn’t always an easy journey. “It was painful. It was exciting. It felt like I’d grown up. It was an interesting and beautiful process.”
The upcoming album follows Eddie’s 2021 debut EP, Emotional, which earned widespread acclaim from critics. With the new single and Eddie’s stellar performances on Bieber’s Justice World Tour, which continues through July, it’s easy to see why.
