Ben Haenow has released his second independent single ‘Forgive & Forget’ and has, once again, showcased his musical virtuosity.
The 32-year-old singer, who won The X Factor in 2014, penned the confessional anthem with his brother Alex Haenow.
With hopes of reconciliation and promises of change, Ben pours his heart out in the emotional tale of remorse and regret.
Ben, who is now happily married, explained the inspiration for his new single and the meaning behind it. He said:
“On the first look, ‘Forgive & Forget’ is about second chances; ruining a relationship because of your own issues and problems and not realising until it’s too late.
“But not just relationships, it’s a song about being caught up in something so bad that you are almost blind to how you are acting in search of something you think you need/want and blind to those who love and know you best. Then the realisation that everything you actually needed was there all along.”
‘Forgive & Forget’ has already proven to be huge hit with Ben’s loyal supporters. It follows the singer’s previous release ‘Alive’ which has now been streamed more than a quarter of a million times on Spotify. Both songs will feature on Ben’s forthcoming five-track EP.
Fans can expect to hear ‘Forgive &Forget’ live at Ben’s headline UK shows. The talented musician will be hitting the road for The Rising Tour this December and he will be performing at nine different venues. Tickets are on sale here.
With another remarkable and relatable song under his belt, Ben Haenow is showing no signs of slowing down. The British singer-songwriter continues to prove that he’s one of the very best in the industry.
