A cool song and an interesting music video for the latest song of Benjamin Taylor: Wicked Way. He explains that because he was feeling uncomfortable in front of the camera, singing ‘wicked way’ / ‘freaky sexuality’, his friend came up with the idea of it sung by 15 different models from Trump Model Management, who are each morphing into each other – Directed by Patrik Andersson.
Here is the Press Release they sent us :
Single Released July 6th 2009
From the album The Legend of Kung Folk – Part 1 (The Killing Bite)
‘Wicked Way’ listed at #2 on the Best Songs (Folk) on iTunes in America for 2008
‘Wicked Way’, the second single from Benjamin Taylor’s third album, reveals the humour, wit and skill of this gifted singer-songwriter. Written with collaborator and friend David Saw ‘Wicked Way’ is a tongue-in-cheek tale of honest lustiness in which the niceties of the pursuit are deemed irrelevant when all the guy wants is sex:
“I just want to take you out and get you drunk so I can have my wicked way with you. I’m just being honest ‘cause I know the other guys are thinking just the same way too”
Making music is as natural as breathing to Ben who is as comfortable in both his own skin and with his impressive musical legacy. The son of James Taylor and Carly Simon, Ben’s life was always centred on music, although he spent several years travelling the world, developing a deep appreciation for the earth and the outdoors. His acclaimed previous releases include his debut album, Famous Among the Barns, and Another Run Around The Sun, which was hailed on Radio 2 as “LP of the Week.”
The Legend of Kung Folk – Part 1 (The Killing Bite), released in April 2009, drew further acclaim for his blend of acoustic-folk-pop. Live sessions on Radio 2 and a sold out UK tour, on which he was joined by David Saw and bassist Ben Thomas, revealed him to be a entertaining live performer and Ben will return to Britain to play on the Acoustic Stage at Glastonbury on June 26th.
“I’ve had four summers in the UK without ever having attended Glastonbury so that is time enough to have heard many, many, many good and great things. I plan to shake my ass.” – Ben
