Ben Howard unveils new single 'Walking Backwards'

With his highly-anticipated new album arriving in less than a month, Ben Howard has now dropped the next cut to be lifted from his forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Walking Backwards' follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Couldn't Make It Up' in previewing his fifth full-length 'Is It?', which is set to arrive on the 16th June via Island Records.

Speaking about the new offering, he said, "Walking Backwards is a song to remind ourselves you are doing just fine. A small, personal resistance to the growing pressure to conform. To let go of the constant expectation that we should be striving for more and ploughing forever forwards.. You are doing great, keep up the good work."
