The rising singer-songwriter - who is currently being streamed over 18 million times globally per week - kicked off 2019 with his US television debut on The Late Late Show with James Corden, performing "Let Me Down Slowly." The video of his performance has gone on to amass over 457K views on The Late Late Show's official YouTube channel. That same day began with the release of the beautiful updated version of "Let Me Down Slowly" featuring Alessia Cara. Upon release, the duet quickly received rave reviews with ROLLING STONE hailing, "Benjamin and Cara's voices meld together on the hypnotic pop tune as they reflect on vulnerability and the fear of losing a good relationship. Cara's contribution is a bit of soulful accentuation to the cooler tones of Benjamin's voice as she tackles the second verse and chorus." Benjamin just entered the Billboard Hot 100 with "Let Me Down Slowly (Feat. Alessia Cara)" and is currently the cover of Spotify's esteemed Pop Rising playlist. Last week, Alec's Spotify Singles were released and feature stripped renditions of "Let Me Down Slowly" as well as his fan-favorite, emotionally gripping cover of Eminem's "Stan"

Benjamin is currently overseas on his sold-out European headline tour. He'll return to the US in March and embark on his second North American headline tour. The "Outrunning Karma Tour," which sold-out three months leading to the announcement of upgraded venues and second shows in various markets, gets underway March 29th in San Francisco, CA. Traveling through early May, the tour culminates with two back-to-back nights at Los Angeles, CA's historic El Rey Theatre on May 9th and 10th. The sonic storyteller's largest cross-country trek to date also includes a show at New York's famed Irving Plaza on April 11th. Shortly after, he'll take his live performance to Bottle Rock Festival in Napa Valley in late May. For complete details please visit
