‘Supalonely’ singer BENEE announced her first foray out into the world since the pandemic struck with 40 shows in the northern hemisphere.
She has now added new and rescheduled shows on her New Zealand tour in February-March, followed by her much anticipated return across the Tasman – for the first time in over two years.
The 21-year-old artist broke through with Supalonely, the four billion streaming single from her second EP, and has had to wait for a chance to tour outside her home country again.
Next year sees BENEE kick off with her New Zealand tour before heading to Australia in March, Europe and the UK in April-May and North America in June.
She managed to fit in a sold-out summer 2020 tour of New Zealand with the release of her Hey u x album.
“I am beyond excited to announce that my 2022 WORLD TOUR KICKS OFF IN NZ in Feb next year!!!!!!!!!” says BENEE. “It’s been such a long time coming & we’ve lived through a lot in these weird times but shows starting up again has rly got everyone sososososo happyyy!!!! I can’t wait to get back out there & meet all of u and play a bunch of new musiiiiiicccc!!
“I AM SO READY TO TOUR!!” she exclaims. “Doing shows with my band is the best thing and I have missed it so badly this year. Waiting, rescheduling, waiting again has been incredibly difficult.”
BENEE’s dreamy alt pop mixes her deeply heartfelt reflections on life in suburban Auckland, New Zealand, with offbeat and often whimsical lyrical encounters with zombies and snails, all produced with a technicolour ear for cooked beats and unpredictable hooks.
She has just released her first new music since 2020’s album Hey u x.
The album was a vibrant musical world with guests ranging from Grimes and Lily Allen to Gus Dapperton and Muroki (another New Zealand teen BENEE has since signed to her own label, Olive, and who will join her as the opening act on her Australian dates).
Hey u x was listed as one of Billboard’s 25 Best Pop Albums of 2020, noting that BENEE “contemplates the woes of Gen Z with a keen ear for choruses and arrangements that oscillate between indie rock and hyperpop”. Stereogum praised its “quirky but impeccably produced pop music” and Vogue called it “13 tracks of heavenly indie-alt-pop”.
Latest single ‘Doesn’t Matter’, another deeply revealing track that reflects the singer’s journey through the emotional clatter of 2021, is off to a flying start, streaming over 1million times in its first week.
A forthcoming BENEE EP release leads into plans for 2022 with the thing that excites her the most, a hefty touring schedule that will bring her live show to adoring fans around the world at las
