Having enjoyed his debut release, Welcome To The Best Years Of Your Life (2007), I’m pleased to see Ben Westbeech has a new album, titled There’s More To Life Than This, due in April 2011.
Featuring collaborations with Soul Clap, Henrik Schwartz, MJ Cole, Lovebirds, Motor City Drum Ensemble and Georg Levin, Ben describes the record as being, “house inspired, rather than straight up house music.”
Previously signed to Gilles Peterson‘s Brownswood Recordings label, it seems Westbeech has moved on as new LP There’s More To Life Than This will be released through widely respected label Strictly Rhythm, who recently signed the singer, songwriter, DJ and producer.
Shot on Dungeness beach in Kent during a recent photoshoot, the footage below is backed by new song ‘Summers Loss’, which is taken from Ben’s forthcoming album.
More details will be announced soon, including an initial single release.
