Benjamin Clementine has shared new cut 'Phantom Of Aleppoville', his first release since his Mercury award-winning debut.

The songwriter was homeless at one point, before music helped him to piece his life back together.

Debut album 'At Least For Now' was a startling display of his artistry, and scooped the Mercury Prize backin 2015.

New cut 'Phantom Of Aleppoville' is his first forward step since that moment, and it focusses on the impact bullying has on children.

Benjamin Clementine explains: “Aleppoville is a place where many are bullied if not all, but no one understands nor see why; Phantom.”
