Breakout pop artist Benson Boone returns with the eagerly awaited new EP PULSE. Listen HERE via Night Street Records/Warner Records.
Included on the 5-song set is the crooner’s new focus track “Little Runaway,” a piano-driven anthem filled with longing and charm.
In support of the EP, Boone will hit the road in the US in June for a headlining tour with support from Nicky Youre—see dates below.
Benson just wrapped-up his European tour with a sold-out show at The Academy Green Room in Dublin, on April 29th 2023.
The EP begins with “Coffee Cake,” a bouncy, boisterous digression on laid-back breakfasts and sparkling conversation. It’s followed by the playful pop gem “Lovely Darling” and his recent single, the introspective “What Was.”
Also included isBoone’s smoldering, angsty “Sugar Sweet,” produced by Jason Evigan (Justin Bieber, Dua Lipa, Maroon 5), which truly highlights the singer’s dazzling vocal abilities and has already amassed more than 18 million streams.
Amidst the bluesy arrangements and soaring choruses, “Little Runaway” almost feels like a throwback to the intimacy ofBoone’s previous releases.
“Won’t you come and we can stare at the stars,” he gently pleads on the single’s chorus, over tinkling keys and a pulsating beat, adding, “And look at the comets from the roof of my car. Little runaway, I know it’s been hard.” It’s impossible not to get swept up in the track’s transporting imagery.
The latter became the 20-year-old’s first entry on the Billboard Hot 100 and reached Top 25 at both Top 40 and Hot AC radio. It also became his first RIAA-certified Gold record, followed by “In The Stars,” which was certified in January.
Last week, Boone hosted an intimate album release concert for his fans in Los Angeles, Presented by Breakthrough—the program from Amazon Music supporting up-and-coming artists from around the world—and Warner Records, the event featured Benson performing his full new EP in full for a crowd of fans at The Berrics 2.0 skatepark.
Last year, Benson was selected as an Amazon Music Breakthrough Arist; as part of this selection, Benson and Amazon Music worked together on a bespoke campaign to support his music that has included exclusive video and audio content, global marketing campaigns, increased visibility across playlists and programming, events, and more.
Boone was first discovered by Imagine Dragons superstar Dan Reynolds. Since then, he has earned more than 1.2 billion global streams to date, as well as praise from Billboard, who lauded his “restrained vocals” and Consequence, who dubbed the newcomer “an exciting new voice.” With PULSE, Boone showcases impressive artistic growth and hints at bold new horizons.
