"S&W" PRESENTS: Ben Lorentzen - Album "King Of Bitter Sorrow" releases 28.02.2020

Album "King Of Bitter Sorrow" 
release Friday, February 28th 2020



Here Lorentzen continues to dive deeper into the Suburban Noir landscape he started exploring with two previous albums. In other words: it is still dark and moody, it’ s introvert, eclectic and dealing with the pains and pleasures of existence. The pace is slower than on the previous album “Pains & Pleasures of Intimacy”, but the lyrics are strong, heartfelt and sung as if life depended on it. As a backdrop Ben Lorentzen explains how he imagines the 10 songs as a conversation between humanity and it’s collective conscience and how the two entities falling apart becomes the King of Bitter Sorrow.


Two singles are out and available everywhere.

Lyrics
When this world seems confounding
And I’m elusively pounding
Through fleeting dispatches
And nothing matches
And I, I had my share
Will I find your here?


When I’m tied up by lose ends
And surrounded by no friends
And life is a shadow
That sits by my window
And I, I had my share
Will I find you here?


Will I find you here
Right next to nothing
Holding up What comes down
Will I find you here
Right next to nothing
Holding up What comes down?


One promise failed
Is a double wrong made
As the hurting is two fold
And the aftermath is too cold
And I, I had my share
Will I find you here?


I know the sensations
Of chintzy exhortations
That squirms out of passion
Like a floating apparition
And I, I had my share
Will I Find you here ?


Will I find you here
Right next to nothing
Holding up What comes down
Will I find you here
Right next to nothing
Holding up what comes down?

“Instantly captivating.” - The Independent

“Watch this woman, she’ll go far.”
- BBC Introducing

  "....manages to accomplish the obscure split between Norah Jones and Beth Orton. “Jealous Angels” has almost the power of a Soap&Skin song."   
 - Rolling Stone Magazine, Germany

"The great part about it is that she can pull back in a delicate manner where just as it approaches fey range, she pushes it back up into powerful registers" - Folkworld
 
"But the strong storytellers among the singer songwriters do exist!" - Lie in the Sound

Flemming Borby wuchs in einem kleinen Dorf namens Birkende auf der Insel Fyn (Fünen) in Dänemark auf. Seine erste musikalische Erfahrung war die Musik, die im Radio lief.
Popmusik stand damals am Anfang einer rasanten Entwicklung – im Radio lief vor allem
Musik aus Großbritannien und den USA sowie die entsprechenden dänischen Kopien. Noch immer liebt er die Musik, die Wert auf Melodien und Harmonien legt, und nennt Scott Walker und Burt Bacharach zu seinen all time favourites.
