Three years after Fever Dream, British musician and singer-songwriter Ben Watt (Everything But The Girl) announced the release of a new album. Storm Damage is out on January 31th, 2020. “Sunlight Follows The Night” is the first excerpt and it accompanied with the video by award-winning film maker Rahim Moledina, who wrote and directed the video for the title track from Watt’s album Hendra in 2014.
“Dawn always breaks out of darkness,” says Watt of the song. “For all the struggle there’s always a way out.”
“I needed a fresh approach,” says Watt. “The album came out of an intense period of personal anguish and political anger. Sometimes repeating yourself musically feels disrespectful to the sharpness of your feelings. You have to search for a new way to capture the energy.”
