A few years ago, Ben Watt traded in his post-Everything But The Girl career as an international DJ for a surprising return to his first love: being a damn fine singer/songwriter. EBTG’s surprising second act as an innovative dance band had obscured Watt’s superb songwriting chops, but his renewed interest has quickly reminded the world of his talents. His fourth solo LP, Storm Damage, is out at the end of January, and new single “Figures In The Landscape” blends his jazz peccadillos with flourishes of electronica and a catchy pop melody. It’s simultaneously warm and cool, enjoyable as soundtrack to a late night jazz club and a Sunday afternoon coffee shop hang.
