Many may know Ben Ottewell from his work with Gomez, but the singer and guitarist is gearing up for the release of his second solo album, Rattlebag. The album sees Ottewell collaborating again with his childhood friend and Shapes & Shadows writing partner, Sam Genders, and promises a lush collection of Americana and folk influences.
Stream album track “Red Dress” in the player above. Ottewell describes the single as “a song about love, conflict and the armor we wear to get by, how sometimes surrender is better than continuing to fight.”
Rattlebag hits stores via The End Records on October 27. You can pre-order Rattlebag here.
