Benji Lewis has released his new EP, Floating, consisting of previously released singles “Head Rush” and “Jump This Train” alongside three brand new tracks. The beautifully crafted, diverse collection of sounds found Lewis teaming up with Australian producer Tom Eggert to help him get these songs right where they needed to be. Listen to it now below.
Of the EP, Benji Lewis said, “Last year (2021) was pretty heavy at times for me, as I’m sure it was for many of you as well, there was just so much going on that we just had to deal with and try to get through each day as it came.
During that time, I also went through a sad break-up, so it was an emotional and sad time for me. As it turned out, the person I was seeing didn’t feel the same way I did, and so as I was falling for them, they were considering the easiest way to leave.
Getting in the studio with Tom Eggert (a friend and great producer based in sunny Brisbane Australia) was just what I needed. Throughout that week or so of writing this ep we had many laughs, lots of good coffee, a few beers here and there and shared lots of stories and memories that were close to us both.
These songs are so personal and almost hard to listen to for me without tearing up or getting emotional. I’m so glad I was able to get these songs finished and in essence be able to share those stories with you all. It definitely helps me process all the memories and emotions and move on from the whole experience.
I hope that these songs can give you some comfort in knowing you’re not alone. We all go through difficult moments throughout our lives, but we get through them, and it does get better.”
