Having exploded into view with the launch of his two EPs, ‘1992’ and ‘1000’, Ben Khan now announces the arrival of his self-titled debut album, due for release on August 10 via Dirty Hit. Khan also revealed the self-titled album’s latest single ‘ruby’ which follows the record’s lead track ‘2000 angels’.
“I think the point of an artist is to show people a different side of things, to take different perceptions of life and present them back to you," he says of the album. "Hopefully, this album will take you out of your reality for a bit and take it to the start of a fantasy place.”
The album was produced alongside legendary PJ Harvey, Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails collaborator Flood, mixed by Spike Stent (Björk, Frank Ocean) and mastered by Dave Cooley (J Dilla, M83), with Ben playing every instrument on the record.
