Australian legend Ben Lee has just introduced his new single Arsehole featuring Georgia Maq, lead singer and guitarist from Camp Cope.
The one is the very first to be released off his forthcoming album I am Entertaining, to which Lee explained, “This album, this minute in my vocation, is all about balancing some really hard-acquired knowledge from a 30-calendar year long job with the vigor and power of youth.
“That is why it was as significant to me to collab with artists like Jon Brion and Income Mark who I’ve the two recognized for above 2 many years, as considerably as people today like Shamir and Georgia Maq who are young and lit up with artistic adrenaline. I like getting a generational bridge among freaky artists. They are my tribe!”
On the surface area, Arsehole is a pleasurable and comedic reflection for Lee, where by he trails by means of the distinct ways he interacted in the earth as a younger human being, considering how his actions designed him into an ‘arsehole’. Beneath, it houses a tender confessional and heat forgiveness that only will come with a long time of reflection. The song is packed with poignant lyrics that offer you a reminder – in a way that only excellent music can – of the cosmic joke of residing on a spherical ball traveling by means of place. That is to say – from time to time we take things a small much too severely.
The place a lot of artists could possibly fall short to definitely grasp the wisdom and humility that arrives with 30 several years in the sector, Ben Lee captures the experience beautifully, weaving the gentle instrumental around repetitive and strong vocals. Georgia Maq also lends her vocals, making an energetic punch to an normally tender and healthful one.
If Arsehole is a flavor of what’s to appear from his new album I’m Fun, slated for launch August 19, then audiences are in for a address.
