Benny Sings is on one helluva roll as of late. The Dutch dynamo began the sprint towards his first album in five years with the electric and minimal r&b stylings of “You And Me,” rocking alongside the DMV’s radiant son, GoldLink. Today, however, Benny’s unveiled another collaboration from the STUDIO LP, this time around, linking with Detroit’s own modern soulman Mayer Hawthorne on the playful and rubbery ’80s-leaning trot “Shoebox Money.” Built over bright, tinny synth plucks and a bubblegum bass line, Benny’s effected vox and Hawthorne’s smoothly crooned, perfectly layered bridge treatment will have you pining for warmer days and colder drinks. Benny Sings’ STUDIO LP is slated to arrive this Friday, November 27th via Dox Records/Jakarta Records. Have yourself a listen to the record’s latest reveal down below and once you’ve had your fill, pre-order it on iTunes today. Keep your eye on us for even more from Benny Sings in the days ahead.
