About this item
BRIT Award winner, cultural commentator, critically acclaimed director and actor, and musical maverick Ben Drew aka Plan B is back with his eagerly anticipated fourth studio album ‘Heaven Before All Hell Breaks Loose’. The three time Ivor Novello Award winner has also released new single ‘Heartbeat’, written with Kwabs and Al Shux (Jay Z, Lana Del Ray), which marries Plan B’s incredible signature vocals with soulful, uplifting beats and spine-tingling melodies.
The artwork for HBAHBL was unveiled, which focuses around the classic sci-fi image of world renowned illustrator John Harris, tying in Plan B’s fascination with the world we live in and the future we’re creating for ourselves. It also sees Plan B collaborating with other writers and producers for the first time, including Arrow Benjamin (Runnin’ Naughty Boy/Beyonce); Foy Vance; Fred Gibson (Ellie Goulding, Charli XCX), and Kid Harpoon (Florence and the Machine, HAIM).
Earlier in 2017 to mark his return to the scene, Plan B revealed a brand new stand-alone track ‘In The Name Of Man’, which focused around mass upheaval. The video saw collaboration with Flabbergast Theatre, a small company that he came across at a show in Angel, London. He was hugely inspired by their innovative and incredibly life-like use of puppetry, often using tiny movements to convey bold emotions, and employed this with incredible effect, alongside captivating historical footage
