Ben Caplan has announced that he will release his sophomore album Birds With Broken Wings this fall, release date TBA on September 18 Coalition Music.

To tide fans over, he shared the lyric video for ’40 Days & 40 Nights’, his first new music since his 2011 debut In the Time of Great Remembering;

“I think that a new album was probably due years ago,” Caplan admitted in a statement. “But whether or not I would have been able to pull it off the way I wanted to, that I don’t know. I wanted to take my time and honour the process. There was a lot to learn. I wanted to make an album that was complex but with space for anyone to find their way into it. I wanted to collaborate with people who inspire me and find space for unexpected things. It takes time.”

“When I wrote ‘40 Days & 40 Nights’, I fantasized about performing it with a full soul orchestra. In what seemed like an outlandish pipe dream, I reached out to funk trombone legend Fred Wesley to see if he could do the horn and string arrangements. I mean, if he was good enough for James Brown and Parliament Funk, I figured he’d be up to the task. I was amazed when he agreed to work with me! I couldn’t be happier with how this track turned out.”

Even though he reached his Pledgemusic goals in just 12 hours, there are still exclusives fans can still snap up including vinyl bundles, a canoe adventure and an all-expenses paid trip for a private concert with Caplan.
