‘At Least For Now’ was finally released in the UK and Europe on March 30th.
Benjamin Clementine’s first album ‘At Least For Now’ was released last week on Virgin EMI. You can download it on iTunes here or buy it from Benjamin’s official store here.
The album received brilliant reviews:
“Remarkable, beyond-categorisation debut album – genuinely heart-wrenching” (Debut Album of the Week) Sunday Times Culture
“An extraordinary musical statement startling and entirely original. A masterpiece” ***** – Independent On Sunday
“Nina Simone’s brother steps into an elegant French café, sits down at the piano and tears open a vein” – Rolling Stone
“An extraordinary new musical talent. Incredible” ***** – Evening Standard
“He’s an antidote to a mediocrity that seems so pervasive with solo singers right now…. He has the magnificent phrasing of Nat King Cole, the earthy humor of Jacques Brel and a gift for random left field oddness that few artists since Scott Walker have possessed” – Noisey
“Clementine’s debut album is by turns bold, brave, beautiful and at times quite brilliant. An exciting new talent” **** – The Observer
“Intoxicating torch songs of estrangement and passion. A powerful introduction to a compelling artists presence” **** – Mojo
“A brilliant young singer” – Time Out
“Anyone attending last night’s concert would have realised that Clementine has talent to burn” **** – The Daily Telegraph
“An exceptional musical outing…entirely defined by its creator’s unique vision. He may have created 2015’s most striking and bewitching album” ***** – The Arts Desk
“The 24 year old marries the intimacy of Antony Hegarty with the passion of Aretha Franklin and the intensity of Edith Piath, delivering his introspective lyrics about integrity and vulnerability with an almost operative soul sensibility that recalls Nina Simone” **** – The Independent
Benjamin also played a sold-out Barbican show last week, which again received fantastic reviews from The Evening Standard and The Telegraph.
Benjamin will be on tour all over Europe in the next few months. Don’t miss out on a super exciting new talent!
