Marco Benevento will release his new studio album, Let It Slide, Sept. 20 via Royal Potato Family Records, and today the keyboardist and singer-songwriter shares a new video for album track “Say It’s All the Same,” the second single from the effort.
The bouncy tune features a couple of whistled and sung hook melodies, plus backing vocals from Benevento’s bassist, Karina Rykman. On the track, which was premiered today along with the vintage-looking video over at Flood, Benevento says, “It’s a sweet, easy summer time dance track that’ll have you feelin’ good in no time…like a bouquet of fresh cut flowers.” Listen below.
Benevento and his trio featuring Rykman and drummer Andy Borger have also added a batch of December tour dates on the West Coast, starting Dec. 5 in San Diego, and wrapping up Dec. 14 in Seattle. Tickets for the new dates, which can be seen below the video, will be available this Friday, Aug. 2. See Benevento’s full schedule, which continues tomorrow in Albany, NY, here.
