Benjamin’s new album To Carry A Whale will be released on June 18th on Dirty Hit. It was recorded across a four month period last year in Benjamin Francis Leftwich’s Tottenham home, in Urchin Studios in Hackney, in a hotel room in Niagara, and in a Southend studio owned by Sam Duckworth (Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly) – who produced much of the record, sharing production duties with Eg White (Adele, Florence & The Machine, Sam Smith).

Benjamin Francis Leftwich was the first artist signed to Dirty Hit Records, whereupon he released his acclaimed debut album Last Smoke Before the Snowstorm in 2011. The album hit the top 40 in the UK and included the hit single Shine which was remixed by tropical house king Kygo and named by Spotify their “most addictive song of 2014”; the song that was repeat-played most often that year.

Benjamin Francis Leftwich has sold over 180,000 albums worldwide, with over 500 million streams to date. His new album To Carry A Whale will be released on June 18th via Dirty Hit.

He will perform at The Foundry in Sheffield on February 24th, The Citadel in York on February 25th and The Parish in Huddersfield on February 26th 2022.
