Brooke Bentham has shared ‘Over and Over’, her first new material in over two years.
Recorded with Patrick J Pearson at Middle Farms Studios, the new song marks the North East native’s return to music following a two-year absence. In 2020, the singer-songwriter dropped her debut album, ‘Everyday Nothing’, which Dork’s 3-star review described as, “a stunningly ambivalent outlook on life and all of its mundane aspects”.
The new song is a distinct change of tone, proving an upbeat scrapbook of happiness following support slots alongside Lucy Dacus, Sam Fender and more, all of which have continued to hone her live prowess.
“‘Over and Over’ was written fast,” Bentham shares. “It was my way of asking myself if I could just write a song that I didn’t have to think too much about, but reflected where I was at. The last few years have been full of road trips, camping, staying indoors. It’s my ode to road trips, getting away from life, feeling like yourself and enjoying being alive. I wanted it to physically sound like that”.
She will showcase the new track on the 2023 live circuit, and it serves as the lead single from an EP release slated for early next year.
