LA-based singer/songwriter Ben Abraham recently released his stunning new single “War In Your Arms” via Atlantic Records. The track features striking piano melodies and massive gospel harmonies set against a gracefully sculpted beat. It arrives alongside an equally evocative official video starring Abraham.
Produced by James Flannigan (Dua Lipa, MARINA, Matt Maeson) and co-written with fellow Australian singer-songwriter Helen Croome, “War In Your Arms” marks the first track off Abraham’s forthcoming sophomore album, due out later this year. BUY/STREAM “WAR IN YOUR ARMS” HERE
Of the heavy-hearted lead single, Ben shares: “It’s about that point when the relationship is done and you’re trying so hard to hold onto love, it almost becomes like an act of violence. All you’re really doing is hurting yourself and hurting the other person, until you can gather the strength to say, ‘Enough. I’m done.’”
Today’s single comes on the heels of “Like A Circle,” released by overwhelming popular demand after Abraham teased a snippet of the then unreleased track to his TikTok last month (the original clip has now amassed nearly 1 million views in just a few short weeks).
Last year, Abraham released a striking rendition of Peter Gabriel’s classic “In Your Eyes,” recorded live during sunset at the Vasquez Rocks in California (watch here). This followed previous singles “Satellite” and “Nobody Wants to Hear Songs Anymore,” both released in 2019.
