Ben Lee to release new album Deeper Into Dream on October 11

Australian rocker Ben Lee is set to release his new solo album Deeper Into Dream on October 11 through Dangerbird Records.

Harnessing the theme of dream work, Ben encapsulates by saying, “This album is about dreams, and like a dream, it bubbled up mysteriously from my unconscious. I’m listening to it wondering what it is, and why it came, what it has to tell me.”

Ben continues, “I feel I spent the bulk of my 20s chasing ‘alternative hits,’ an elusive and frustrating endeavor, so I decided to dump all of those goals and make a totally personal record at my home studio in Laurel Canyon.”

Download the new single “Get Used To It” for free at ben-lee.com and catch Ben premiering new material from Deeper Into Dream at upcoming shows in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Philadelphia.
