[Listen] Benjamin Francis Leftwich - "Shine"

The wonderful Benjamin Francis Leftwich has announced his next single to be taken from the subtle yet equally brilliant debut album, Last Smoke Before The Snowstorm. Titled "Shine", it puts together Ben's hair raising voice along with delicate guitar lines and pairs it with some female harmonies making for a great listen that will happily take you to a flower filled field in the countryside as oppose to a stuffy office in the City.

The single will be released on November 7th but in the mean time he's about to embark on a huge tour across the UK spanning the entire of October and tiptoeing into early November. Dates of the tour as well as a brand new 2012 date for O2's Shepherd's Bush Empire can be viewed after the jump.
