Liam Benayon Releases New Song “Next Chapter”
Toronto-based singer-songwriter Liam Benayon released a new song “Next Chapter” on August 25, 2023.
The song is a cheeky jaunt inspired by a boy obsessively sending him the books he was currently reading. The track originally was shelved, but inspired by feedback from others he decided to fill it out with a blend of pop sub-genre inspo and release it.
The track was written and produced by Liam Benayon.
Liam Benayon said of the song, “My new single, 'Next Chapter,' was inspired by my annoyance with a guy who kept sending me all these books he was reading. He seriously thought he was the smartest person in the room.”
He continued, “'Send me a Lana song, I promise I'll listen, bet you read all the words and think you're so smart.' My god, this line is just too real. It's almost awkward for me to sing 'cause the boy knows it's about him. He even came to one of my shows in New York City and I got to sing it to his face. It's all fun and games now but I still can't believe I just went with that!”
- He explained about recording process, “Always in my back pocket, I added elements to this song over the course of a year. First, I had real drums recorded along with the programmed drums which is something I'd never done before. I also got my friend Cinde to lay down some super anthemic guitars. The most fun part was recording gang vocals for the very final chorus. I did an open call for people when I was still going to school, and we used the school's studio to shove like… 15 of us in a recording booth where we all sang the oh oh oh's in one big chant. It really lifted the track's energy and I'm so happy I could get it done.”
