Listen: Ben Howard shares new track ‘Crowhurst’s Meme’

'Collections From The Whiteout' is set for release on March 26

Ben Howard has previewed his new album Collections From The Whiteout, which is set for release on March 26th via Island Records, with a new track called “Crowhurst’s Meme.”

“This song was firstly inspired by a wonky synth guitar part that I had which had a kind of seasick quality to it, which in my head had a tenuous link to the Donald Crowhurst story – the famous tale of the amateur British sailor who dies whilst sailing around the world,” Howard explains. “These two things seemed to marry and so it became a sort of exploration of the undocumented universal side of the story.”
