Ben Howard has announced his new album, ‘Is It?’.

His fifth full-length, the record will arrive on 16th June via Island Records preceded by new single ‘Couldn’t Make It Up’, which was inspired, in part, by Ben’s experience with two mini strokes (TIAs).

“I found it impossible not to dwell on the absurdity of it,” he explains, “that with one tiny clot, one can lose all faculties. It really ate into the writing of the record.”

Check out the new single below; Ben’s also announced a new show at London’s Royal Albert Hall on 1st June.
