|Benjamin Clementine At Least For Now Limited Vinyl LP
North London newcomer Benjamin Clementine will release his debut album,continuing a journey which has taken Benjamin from busking around Paris to a debut performance on BBC2’s Later..with Jools Holland late last year, and then sold-out headline shows at London’s Purcell Rooms, Koko and Emmanuel Centre. With additional backing from the likes of Zane Lowe and Lauren Laverne – plus dates supporting Cat Power and Tune-Yards. Benjamin Clementine has packed a lot into his 25 years: heartbreak, homelessness, reinvention, before reaching cult status in Paris and returning home in unlikely circumstances. word spread from across the continent to the point where Benjamin Clementine’s UK live debut took place on national TV, of all places: he played two tracks on Later…With Jools Holland, caused a small storm on Twitter, and Paul McCartney was among the first to congratulate Clementine on an "amazing" performance. At 6 ft 3 - dressed in his now-trademark overcoat and bare-feet - Clementine cut an extraordinary, puzzling presence. He had hardly, however, come from nowhere, and Benjamin Clementine’s debut album offers a fascinating glimpse into that shadowy figure hunched over the piano.
