#1049: 2015, Benjamin Clementine, Winston Churchill’s Boy

by Bobby_West on December 1, 2015

Jesus this is good. The opening track of Benjamin Clementine’s recently announced Mercury Music Prize winning album. Can’t say I’m up to speed on all of this year’s short-list, but they would have been something very special to have beaten Clementine’s At Least For Now.

This autobiographical song, including reworking of Churchill, is a song of England, a neglected childhood and a journey across the channel. Just brilliant.

‘Never in the field of human affection
Had so much been given for so few attention’
