Benny Boeldt announces album + shares first single

November 17, 2015 4:32 pm

Benny Boeldt, also known as Adventure, will be releasing his new album 8 of Cups. Record will be out January 26th, 2016. The first single, “Tea,” is streaming now via Baltimore City Paper and Spotify.

8 of Cups signals the beginning of a new chapter for Benny Boeldt, the Baltimore artist also known as Adventure. It’s the first record under Boeldt’s own name after releasing three albums as Adventure on Carpark Records. It will be available in stores and online Jan. 29, 2016! Pre-order the album on the  Carpark shop & iTunes.

8 of Cups veers from wacky to beautiful to chaotic; using gorgeous melodies, hyperactive noise, and off-the-wall samples. The title is a reference to the tarot card, which Boeldt found to be an accurate representation of his life as he made the album. The 8 of cups card embodies the start of a new journey, a transition, growing apart, and accepting one’s faults to move on.
