    4 years since his last original album (the critically acclaimed “Unravelling”) Bentley returns with his magnum opus. After an electrifying headline performance at the Tokyo Bon Summer Festival in 2019 as part of Ben’s 10th anniversary, his Japanese company did a dramatic turnabout. Stating he was “too controversial” for their audience and the company was “worried what people would think”, Bentley returned to the UK independently in 2020. He continued what would become 2 years work on his most poignant and impressive album to date

    Releasing new music in the summer of 2020, he gained support from BBC Introducing, performed at the historic Global Pride festival to 57 million viewers, earned ambassadorships with 9monsters (the #1 LGBTQ+ app in Asia) and Queens Sounds, and is set to headline Miami Beach Pride 2021 and 2022

    Now he’s almost ready to finally unleash “The Examined Life is Not Worth Living” – 16 incredible tracks elevating his signature slick productions by lacing them with R&B, soul, trip-hop, as well as the enormous pop bops Bentley’s name has become synonymous with.
