Benjamin Francis Leftwich delivers Christmas single 'Tinsel In The River'

Following on from the release of his much-loved fourth studio album 'To Carry A Whale' earlier this year, Benjamin Francis Leftwich is now getting in the festive spirit with a brand new single.

The new track 'Tinsel In The River' sees him reflect upon the last year, and cap out his 2021 in warm and vibrant form.

Speaking about the new offering, he said, “‘Tinsel In The River’ is a song about sitting alone over the Christmas period and reflecting over the previous year of love, loss and what could have been - but flew out of one's hands. The song is set against the Christmas party season in the town in Yorkshire where I am from. The city comes alive with: the party, the bag, loving fellowship - and also chaos.

"To me the song is about that feeling of isolation, set against the backdrop of bright noisiness at that time of year and how the sparkle of it all can also be the trigger for the pain that was so nearly disappearing in the normal stillness of the town, which suddenly is turned upside down.”
