Ben recently spoke with InStyle about his music, releasing his first EP, ‘Songs For You’, and what he wants his legacy to be. You can read the full interview below.
The actor opens up in a whole new way in his debut album, ‘Songs For You’.
This is a story about priorities. Ben Barnes thought he knew what his were, until someone — an ostensibly straightforward person in his life — told him that none of the things he said were his priorities actually were his priorities because, well, he didn’t prioritize them.
The official music video for Ben Barnes’ first single, ’11:11′, off his upcoming EP, ‘Songs For You’, has been released! Watch it here. Screen captures have been added to the gallery. ’11:11′ officially drops tonight at midnight EST across all digital music platforms.
Ben has announced that his first 5-track EP, ‘Songs For You’, is set to be released on October 15th. You can pre-order the first single, ’11:11′, now. Congrats, Ben! He has also shared a 17 second video teaser for ’11:11′ on his official YouTube channel.
They say life begins at 40… well, not mine.
I am 14,609 days old today and I am celebrating every one of them. I have spent most of them pursuing dreams, surrounding myself with people I love and supported by all of you… and I know just how incredibly lucky that makes me.
One of my biggest unfulfilled dreams has been to release my own music. Music has been my passion my whole life and after a few false starts 20 years ago, I decided not to pursue it as a career. But today, I am realizing that ambition and announcing the release of my own songs.
I have wanted to create something more personal and intimate, to offer up something joyful, honest, soulful and passionate; I hope that you find some of this on my EP.
