BENEE Shares New Single, "Want Me Back"
Hailing from the suburbs of Auckland, 19-year-old indie pop artist BENEE has returned with her latest single “Want Me Back” out today. Coming off the heels of her Gold-Certified hit “Soaked” and viral hit “Evil Spider,” the up and coming singer and songwriter also announces her upcoming debut EP FIRE ON MARZZ set for release on June 28th.
On “Want Me Back” BENEE says, “Want Me Back was freestyled in a recent studio session. I just improvised and think the result is more vulnerable and different to the rest of the songs on the FIRE ON MARZZ EP. It’s definitely tops of the BENEE songs for me right now.”
BENEE has emerged as New Zealand’s artist to watch with her chart-topping hit “Soaked,” which quickly climbed Spotify’s Viral Charts, accumulated nearly 20 million streams to date, charted on Australia’s Triple J radio’s Hottest 100 of 2018 and held the number one spot on New Zealand’s Shazam Top 100 for two months, not to mention achieved Gold Certification in New Zealand and Australia. With endorsements from Zane Lowe and Apple’s Beats1 radio, BENEE went from playing her first small club gig to her first arena show—opening for longtime role model Lily Allen—in a matter of months. Not to mention, her song “Evil Spider” has already hit nearly 2 million streams and counting!
In support of “Want Me Back” and her upcoming debut EP, BENEE will be performing at New York’s Mercury Lounge on June 17th. Tickets are available now HERE.
