NEW ALBUM: BEN ABRAHAM | FRIENDLY FIRE

Award-winning Australian-born, LA-based singer/songwriter Ben Abraham dropped his new album "Friendly Fire" via Atlantic Records. The first single from the set, "Runaway," features the acclaimed artist delivering an intimately raw and personal narrative juxtaposed against a driving beat and glittering synths. The track is accompanied by a powerful one-take visual inspired by the film “Shame,” starring a young runner traversing through the dark, late-night streets of Los Angeles. Abraham’s new album ‘Friendly Fire’ is a stunning body of work, chronicling a massively life-altering period in the singer-songwriter’s life. Previously released tracks off the album include: "War In Your Arms," "Requiem," and "Like A Circle," which have amassed millions of streams globally and been met with praise from American Songwriter, Clash and more. “If a big theme of my first album was finding faith, then my new album explores what happens when you lose it. Runaway was the first song I wrote and set the template of what was to follow in many ways. I had met the person I was certain I was going to marry but ultimately – during a very difficult time – was unfaithful to. All hell broke loose, and I was forced to re-evaluate everything I’d believed to be true. Abraham’s debut LP ‘Sirens’ was initially self-released in 2014, earning widespread critical praise and a 2016 reissue via indie label Secretly Canadian. Featuring appearances from Sara Bareilles and Gotye, the New York Times hailed the album as “a debut of remarkable depth.”
