Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to introduce you to Ben Montague
. This handsome young man is about to unleash a brand new single, "Love Like Stars
" on June 18th
and I have to say, after listening to the studio version I'm left completely mesmerized, wanting more. An epic, sweeping, mid-tempo ballad, "Love Like Stars
" is a cinematic, soundtrack-ready stunner, complete with a big swelling chorus, backed by a lush, beautiful orchestra. You can get a sense of the song below by watching Mr. Montague sing it live at London's O2 Arena
, but the studio version is infinitely more amazing. TRUST ME
). Ben Montague
is definitely worthy of my 'Ones to Watch
' title and I think you'll agree.
Two years ago, Ben Montague saw some success with his debut single, "Haunted," (watch the music video BELOW) after it became a radio hit in the UK. At the time, Montague was completely unattached with no record deal or album to his name. Now it's 2012 and Montague is ready to release his new album, Tales of Flying and Falling, backed by a record label - Nusic Sounds/EMI and a beautiful lead single.
"Love Like Stars" was written by Montague, alongside Jez Ashurst and Kim Richie and will feature on his forthcoming sophomore album, Tales of Flying and Falling. Recorded at Rockfield with producer Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers, Idlewild, Kylie Minogue), 'Tales' promises to be a cohesive album with a natural flow that works from track to track. "It's a set of songs that make sense together; that document a relationship that was right, went wrong, then came right again." According to Montague,
"This was always my dream – to make an album with one producer, in one studio. To take my time and make sure every song sounded as good as it could. Working with Dave was amazing. He’s a rock guy; I write pop songs. We bonded over old-school desks and old-school mics and a love of authentic, epic music."
