16 JUNE 2023 (TORONTO, ON) — Alongside his band, Ben recorded Is It? over 10 days in the Le Manoir de Léon studios in the South of France.
Produced by Bullion (Westerman, Nilüfer Yanya, Orlando Weeks), the record is a lush, sonically splintered album which captures Howard working through moments of seismic shift.
The album’s striking artwork (see below) was designed by Portuguese graphic design and illustrator Bráulio Amado.
Ben is part way through a huge European tour, which arrives at Glastonbury next weekend to open the Other Stage on the Friday morning. The tour continues, with Ben following his recent night at Royal Albert Hall with a big outdoor show at Alexandra Palace Park on 22nd July. Tickets for all headline dates are on sale now via www.benhowardmusic.co.uk
