Ben Hemming, at the forefront of the U.K. Rock scene, has released new single ‘Baptise Me’. This is the second single from a new EP ‘Resurrection’ set for release in the Summer.
An anthem to disillusioned masculinity, ‘Baptise Me’ is a song full of angst that deals with gender issues facing modern men living in a world full of contradictions and hypocrisy, using the confines of Christianity as it’s target.
“‘Baptise Me’ is a song that I wrote really quickly, in a few hours really, it just sort of poured out of me. It uses the topic of religion as it’s base, but it speaks in a wider form than just that. It’s rooted in a lot of issues I had growing up and coming to terms with what it is to be a man.”
Recorded at Masterlink Productions, a studio located in rural Send just outside of Woking, with regular collaborator and producer James Welsh at the controls, it was a return to what is fast becoming a creative hub for Ben Hemming.
“I feel I’ve found a fantastic working environment which on one had enables me to have the confidence to push what I do, as well as providing security and familiarity in the working process.’’
‘Baptise Me’ is a single that firmly established Ben Hemming in the Alt Rock genre gives a tantalising taste on what is to come from his forth coming EP.
