Ben&Ben releases first international single ahead of online fundraising concert

 “Doors” was mixed by Miles Walker—a Grammy Award winner who has previously worked with famous artists like Usher and Rihanna. 

“Everything is okay, I guess. I’m just a little tired.” These are the first two lines of OPM band Ben&Ben’s new song entitled “Doors”. The nine-piece group surprised their fans midnight of April 16, when they released their first-ever international single which was set to be released on April 18, Saturday. 

“The new single [is] out everywhere at midnight. Surprise, we’re pretty excited about this one,” the band wrote on their Twitter page. The band explained that the song “is about passive-aggressiveness, how it can ruin relationships, and how anyone can be on either the sending or receiving end of it.”

According to Rappler, the song was mixed by Miles Walker, Grammy Award-winning sound engineer who has previously worked with big names like Usher and Rihanna. Meanwhile, it was mastered by Leon Zervos, who has worked with singers such as Maroon 5 and Pink.
