“I wanted to do it in a modern way but also respect the album. That’s really important to me as an artist. Making records, making a holistic piece of art where the songs weave together in a particular way and the order matters.”
– Ben Wylen on his latest album release “People Say”
Singer-songwriter Ben Wylen is releasing his debut album “People Say” on December 4th, 2020. However, he is preparing for the official release a bit differently than most, by releasing one song on the album every month up until the final release date! As Wylen mentions above, when creating music he likes to create a cohesive body of work. Releasing his music one song at a time gives him an element of control in the order people listen to his songs.
On a trip to London, Ben had a chance encounter with famous producer Danton Supple (Coldplay, Morrissey). The two hit it off and Supple ended up producing Ben’s entire debut album. The songs on this album are in the same vein as some of Ben’s heroes, such as Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan, with heart wrenching song lyrics and memorable melodies.
