Tim van Berkestijn aka Benny Sings has shared a new song with Mac DeMarco called “Rolled Up.” The Dutch pop artist’s latest single for Stones Throw was written last year at DeMarco’s Los Angeles studio. Benny and DeMarco have also shared a Bear Damen–directed visual for the track. Watch it below.
“The song is about being in the dumps without a particular reason,” Benny said in a press release. He added:
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.
