Beloved musician, songwriter/producer and co-founder of The Raconteurs, Brendan Benson has already been creating quite a buzz south of the border in 2013, by releasing a new single each month. Thanks to the new partnership between Benson’s own Readymade Records and Dine Alone Records, the singles will now be digitally available in Canada on April 16th 2013. Cleverly titled, The First Four Songs, the digital release will include the four singles Brendan Benson has released to date. Full track listing is below.


Fans will be happy to know that Benson will continue to release singles over the next few months. The schedule is as follows:


05.21.13 – “Swallow You Whole”

06.18.13 – “New Words of Wisdom”

07.16.13 – “Red White and Blues”


The project will culminate later this year, when all of the singles will be released as a full-length vinyl record. More details regarding the vinyl release will be announced in the coming months.


With Record Store Day just around the corner, Readymade/Dine Alone Records have announced that Brendan Benson’s exclusive Diamond 7” will be available in Canada on April 20th. The 7” features “Diamond” with a re-mastered demo of “Good To Me” on the b-side.


Benson’s musical approach is detailed, craftsman-like and fastidious. Over the years, Benson has released five solo albums, co-founded The Raconteurs and released two albums with them, and has toured extensively around the world. Brendan has spent his recent months in the studio producing artists such as Willy Mason, UK songstress Leah Mason, and The Howlin’ Brothers new record, which is now available on iTunes Canada here through Readymade/ Dine Alone Records.
