Brendan Benson to release special single

Jack White's new bandmate caps a great year

Brendan Benson is to release a download and 7” only single later this month.

The Detroit-based singer, whose third album ’The Alternative To Love’ was released earlier this year, is to follow up his recent UK tour by issuing a new version of ‘What I’m Looking For’, which will be available on iTunes from October 24.

The 7”, featuring an alternative version of ‘Them And Me’, is released on November 7. A live version of ‘What I’m Looking For’ will also be featured on iTunes from that day.


Benson has just completed his biggest ever UK tour, and will shortly return to his hometown of Detroit to put the finishing touches to the album he has made with Jack White under the name of The Raconteurs, which will be released next year.
