Listen: Donny Benét - Le Piano
‘Mr Experience’ himself returns with an infectiously groovy new instrumental cut from forthcoming EP
When critics are referring to your music as “Prince on a serious budget cut”, you know you must be doing something right, which Sydney’s iconic Donny Benet has been doing for over a decade now across a slew of albums and countless live shows. Winning fans with his unique, time and genre-bending fusion of disco, funk and city pop, his tunes are sure to put grins on bobbing heads with every new listener, and his new single is no exception.
Leaving the vocals aside to let the music do the talking this time around, today Donny gives us Le Piano, the title cut from his forthcoming EP set for release on April 1. Of the EP, Benét says:
“I wanted to create a short EP of instrumentals reflective of the music that has helped me navigate touring life, and life at home for the past years. For me, I really enjoy the headspace that instrumental music can put you in. You can listen to it in any environment with any degree of commitment. It can be something you listen to on the train, plane, something to have on while you're doing your chores, working from home, working out or just something to bop along to.”
Bop along indeed:
