Mercury Prize winner Benjamin Clementine today releases new single ‘Jupiter’, the latest to be lifted from his much-anticipated second album, I Tell A Fly, which will be released through Behind / Virgin EMI on September 15. ‘Jupiter’ follows previous singles ‘Phantom Of Aleppoville’ and ‘God Save The Jungle’ – the latter premiering via 6Music, for whom Benjamin recently played a Lauren Laverne live session – and an acclaimed appearance at this year’s Edinburgh International Festival, the Guardian describing Clementine as a “rare, unvarnished and unpredictable artist… evoking David Bowie, Radiohead and Anonhi”. Recently the subject of The South Bank Show, Benjamin Clementine’s I Tell A Fly follows debut album At Least For Now, which was awarded the Mercury in 2015 and a collaboration this year with Damon Albarn for the latest Gorillaz album. To follow the release of I Tell A Fly, Clementine will play a series of UK & European headline dates through November and December, including London’s Brixton Academy on December 5th. A New York show at Carnegie Hall is also on sale for October 5. Listen to ‘Jupiter’ here.

Informed by a U.S. visa describing him as ‘an alien’, Jupiter’ finds Clementine exploring ideas of identify, both personal and universal. “Seeing my visa just opened everything for me” says Clementine; “Saying ‘Jupiter’ for me was like saying ‘Europa’, or ‘England’, or ‘Edmonton’. Me wandering around in America….there was Trump and Clinton, there was the Orlando attack, the New Orleans attack – here I was thinking I was living in a safe place, but nothing was really safe any more, or ever. It’s a poke at people being called aliens by some people, like we’re from another planet. I think we’re all forever aliens”.

Recent praise for Clementine
Truly extraordinary Sunday Times Culture
A rare, unvarnished and unpredictable artist **** The Guardian
Six minutes of magic, soul and grace from one of the most interesting artists around NME
Brilliant and poetic lyricism backed up by haunting vocals Time Out
Suggests his next album will be hugely ambitious Evening Standard
Nothing short of magic Dork
Just in case his Mercury Prize-winning debut album and, more recently, his collaboration with Gorillaz on ‘Hallelujah Money’ wasn’t clear enough: he’s not just here to entertain, he’s here to say something Loud & Quiet
