Rising star Benny Atlas is back with his new single “Let You Know”. Described as a “disco-tinged summer anthem,” the Wolverhampton singer is capitalising on the momentum of 2021 when he was featured on Radio 1 and Radio 1Xtra.
Benny first erupted onto the UK music scene in November 2020 with his single “Paradise”. His debut EP Honey Rum shortly followed which captured the attention of Notion Magazine, who described him as “one to watch for 2021” and Rickie Haywood-Williams of BBC Radio One said he was “one of the UK’s rising stars”. Benny also caught the attention of Hot Press, Highsnobiety, and COLORS.
Earlier this year the singer was awarded the MOBO Help Musicians Grant to help him drive his career forward. The Help Musicians charity was set up to help artists and give them extra support during crucial moments of their careers. They support artists who are just starting out and those who have been creating for several years. The artist said he was “delighted” by the news and said, “I’m gonna use this money to bring you a super potent new batch of music.”
The new single is taken from Benny’s upcoming EP which is set to be released in November this year. A press release revealed that each track from the release will be accompanied by a visualiser and unique artwork inspired by the 1970s. Atlas worked with creative director Sebastian Miller on the series. Miller has also worked with the likes of Kojey Radical, Oliver Malcolm and Manchester rapper, Bugzy Malone.
His first release of 2022, the artist describes “Let You Know” as “a declarative love song that wrestles between the themes of temptation and true love. It is written to cast away any doubts that can arise in a healthy relationship, and consolidate the trust that has already built. I like to draw parallels between love and the universe, and this song plays with the notion that serendipity goes further and beyond human choice.”
Before its release, Benny took to his social media to share the single artwork with fans and the caption told his followers that “it feels good to be back!” He went on to say “been a little while on the sidelines; life, indecision and stinky arse time wasters all contributed to the delay. One thing that never stopped was the music making. Loads coming In the next chapter.”
