"’Believe’ is a soulful, searching meditation on faith and self-reliance in the singer’s signature husky tones." – TIME

"’Believe,’ the new album’s strongest track, finds Booker lamenting an overwhelming feeling of confusion and hopelessness while an amalgam of electric blues, gospel, and soul swell behind him." – PITCHFORK (8.1)

"Defiant, insightful and both intimately and communally self-actualizing… a soulful, fearless record." – PASTE

With new album ‘Witness,’ Benjamin Booker has created his most ambitious work yet by digging deep into his passion for eccentric soul, R&B, and blues – drawing on everything from William Onyeabor’s 70s African psych-rock to Freddie Gibbs and Pusha T, while never straying too far from the garage-punk intensity that made his self-titled 2014 debut such a creative breakthrough. The album was written entirely by Booker, produced by Sam Cohen (Kevin Morby), and mixed by Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes).
