British singer-songwriter Benedict Cork has spent 2022 crafting tracks for his debut album.
'Dream Of You' is the first taste of what's to come next year - an emotional soaring piano ballad about a fleeting love affair.
This is released in tandem with Benedict's first headline European tour visiting Manchester, Brighton, Amsterdam and a sold out show at London's Collin's Music Hall, previewing tracks from the album alongside songs from his series of EP releases so far.
An artist unafraid to touch on the melancholic, Benedict has toured with Duncan Laurence, AlunaGeorge, Mø, Tom Walker and Emily King as well as supporting Stevie Wonder and Lionel Richie in Hyde Park. His music has been featured across TV and film, as well as in brand collaborations with fashion house Mugler and mental health charity CALM. Singled out as 'sensational' and 'a name to look out for' by Sir Elton John at the beginning of his career, 2023 promises to be Benedict's most exciting year yet.
Listen to 'Dream Of You' here.
"I wrote 'Dream Of You' in the spring of this year. It was my first writing trip to Nashville, and I couldn't wait to immerse myself in country music for the week.
I had just managed to fall far too quickly and too deeply for somebody, and this song came pouring out in one of those first sessions.
It's all about falling in love with the dream of somebody. I found myself clinging on to the hope of it all, rather than facing the reality that it was already turning to nothing. 'Dream Of You' is the first taste of what's to come next year on my debut album, and I'm really excited to start sharing more of it!"
