BLACKBOOK PREMIERE: New Ben Phipps Single ‘Don’t Wake Me Up’

Ben Phipps ditched his Swedish homeland and an entrepreneurial career to test his musical fortunes in NYC. He’s since charted on iTunes in more than 30 countries, had a song placed in Pretty Little Liars, and built a following of more than a million unique listeners on Spotify.

His new single “Don’t Wake Me Up,” which BlackBook premieres here, features Mike Ruby on vocals. It’s a cool, Caribbean-influenced paean to settling into a new life in Gotham – with one of the 2017’s most unavoidable grooves. “New York City, can’t stop dreaming / Don’t wake me up” goes the song’s hopeful,¬†enthusiastic¬†central chant.

Sure to be soundtracking the best moments of your NYC springtime and summer.
