Congrats to Brendan Benson on his new single, "Half A Boy" backed by "Big Kid Face," the first release from Benson's debut solo album on Third Man Records
, coming this spring. Third Man calls the single "a powerful dollop of power chords wrapped into a tale of split personalities."
Benson, who is also a founding member of the Raconteurs, said the single "was one of the last songs to be recorded in my Nashville based recording studio before it was completely demolished and made into a parking lot, but it is a personal comeback for me. "I’ve been producing and co-writing so much that I kinda lost sight of myself. Making this album has brought me home again.”
