Ben&Ben was recently named the most streamed artist in the Philippines in 2023 and the band just dropped a new song to add to their catalog of hit records. “Autumn” is inspired by long distance relationships after Paolo Benjamin, the band’s lead vocalist and guitarist, felt lonely without his girlfriend during their North American tour in Canada.
“A few months later, in early 2023, brother Miguel Benjamin completed the lyrics, also adding a bridge about being in different seasons, which really completed the message of the song,” the folk-pop collective adds. “It speaks about themes of loneliness, yearning, and ultimately, hoping against hope that a new season will come.”
The award-winning band explains in a collective statement, “Autumn is a song where we showcase how we’ve evolved and matured as a band. Writing-wise, we felt that the perspective was a more realistic and mature take on the subject. Arrangement and production-wise, we discovered a lot of new ways to express sounds that achieve the emotion we were going for.”
