Ben Howard aims to reassure with his new single, ‘Walking Backwards’: “You are doing great, keep up the good work”

He's got a new album coming in June.

Ben Howard has released a new single, ‘Walking Backwards’.

It’s the latest cut from his recently-announced new album, ‘Is It?’. His fifth full-length, the record will arrive on 16th June via Island Records and has already been preceded by ‘Couldn’t Make It Up’.

“Walking Backwards is a song to remind ourselves you are doing just fine,” he explains. “A small, personal resistance to the growing pressure to conform. To let go of the constant expectation that we should be striving for more and ploughing forever forwards. You are doing great, keep up the good work.”

Check out the new single below; Ben will play show at London’s Royal Albert Hall on 1st June, too.
