Ben Howard Shares Two New Songs ‘Far Out’ and ‘Follies Fixture’

    Ben Howard has released two new songs, ‘Far Out’ and ‘Follies Fixture’. They’re both taken from his upcoming fourth album, Collections From The Whiteout. Take a listen below.

    Talking about ‘Far Out’, Howard said in a statement: “The song is essentially a critique of how easily people are drawn to violence and animosity without reason, just to pass the time. And ultimately how there is perhaps a simpler, more fulfilling path. I wanted it to have a very British rhyming slang feel and a Roald Dahl sense of macabre humour. I fear my tinkering with it has made it a little more plain and serious.”

    “’Follies Fixture’ is a love song,” he added. “It deals with an apathetic period of my life searching for routine in Paris.”

    Collections From The Whiteout, which was co-produced with The National’s Aaron Dessner, arrives March 26 via Island Records. Previously, Howard shared the singles ‘Crowhursts’s Meme’ and ‘What a Day’.
