Ben Haenow Releases Second Independent Single ‘Forgive & Forget’

Ben Haenow demonstrates his musical talent with his second independent single, ‘Forgive & Forget’. Written with his brother Alex, who will accompany him on tour later this year, the track is a confessional anthem.

The follow-up to his single, ‘Alive’, Ben pours out his heart in an emotional tale of remorse and regret. Now happily married, Haenow explains the inspiration for the track:

“On the first look, ‘Forgive & Forget’ is about second chances; ruining a relationship because of your own issues and problems and not realising until it’s too late.

“But not just relationships, it’s a song about being caught up in something so bad that you are almost blind to how you are acting in search of something you think you need/want and blind to those who love and know you best. Then the realisation that everything you actually needed was there all along.”

The 32 year old singer, who won the X Factor in 2014, will be hitting the road for The Rising Tour this December. See here for tickets and further information.

‘Forgive & Forget’ has already shown itself to be a hit with Ben’s fans, and along with ‘Alive’, which has seen more than a quarter of a million Spotify streams, will be on Ben’s forthcoming five track EP.

‘Forgive & Forget’ is now on iTunes and Spotify. Find Ben Haenow online on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
