Back in August, on Ben Barnes’s 40th birthday he announced that he would finally be releasing his own music. His first single ’11:11′ has been released along with an official music video that was debuted in an exclusive interview he did with People magazine. The music video stars his Westworld co-star Evan Rachel Wood and was shot at the LA theatre downtown.
Check out the video below.
Okay, how much do you love this song? also, we did not know Ben had that much vocal range. That man can sang! the music video was beautiful too and how gorgeous is Evan Rachel Wood? we are already obsessed with this song and can’t wait to get our hands on more when Ben releases his EP next month.
Listening to ’11:11′ it’s clear that Ben has literally found his voice. We love the lyrics and the soulfulness of the track. The song is also an indication of the artist’s who have influenced him through the years. The musical arrangement is perfect and the song makes us feel all the feels!
What we love most about this is the fact that Ben is getting to live out one of his life-long passions; music. Music has always been a big part of his life and getting to witness him bring his vision, and his own words to life is truly a wonderful thing. We have told you countless times before about Ben’s musical past. We’re glad he’s gotten to a place in his life where he feels comfortable enough to share this talent with us.
We think what Ben said in his interview with People is perfect.
“I just reached a place doing this where I felt good about doing it. And so I would just rather own that feeling and put it out and see if anyone digs it,” he adds. “I’m comfortable enough in my own skin and in who I am at this point.”
Well Ben, we definitely dig it. And we are so glad you’re doing what you love. We are more than excited to see what else Ben has in store in the weeks leading up to the release of his EP. You can count on us for any and all things Ben Barnes so keep your eyes, and ears open.
