Benny Sings releases new single & music video featuring Mac DeMarco

Rolled Up is about being in the dumps without a particular reason,” says Benny. “Things can be pretty good, but still you feel like shit. Sometimes leaving it all can be a cure. We wrote this together last year in Mac’s studio. I think Mac went out to get some coffee, and he heard someone use the phrase ‘rolled up, tossed out,’ talking about a cigarette. So that was the start of it. It felt pretty effortless, I think we both come from the same place songwriting-wise. Was a dream to work with him. A true artist.” 

The punchy, deep-in-the-pocket groove of the song comes to life in the existential video: contemplating a broken egg while sipping a healthy pour of brandy, bobbing in a swimming pool while fully clothed, and interpretive dance for good measure. The video was created in Benny and Mac’s respective hometowns of Amsterdam and L.A., with Bear directing the L.A. shoot remotely from Amsterdam, due to the restrictions on travel during the pandemic.
