Happy to announce 'The Swift Sessions,' an exclusive Record Store Day 2019 release. The 7" is composed of "Me and Magdalena" and "The Concept," two previously unreleased tracks taken from separate sessions Ben did with Richard Swift. "All of us who knew and loved Richard Swift are still reeling from the loss. Thankfully, he left us with a large body of work to remember him by. And while I wish it were under other circumstances, I am beyond proud to share some of the work we did together. He was a brilliant human being the likes of which I have rarely encountered in my career. Rest in Peace, Richard." - Ben Net proceeds will go to the Swift family and two incredible organizations, MusiCares and Music Support UK, who will help facilitate this mission.
