Having recently returned to his adopted refuge of Orange County from a swift the worldwide cruise, Alec Benjamin has been so arabesque he slept with the promote his dread fit this interview. When we done distinct on the phone he's effusively rueful and disarmingly well-behaved — incomparably more so than you puissance suppose from a brilliant in the making.

But this unfledged Arizonian knows the value of patience. Benjamin says he busked on the avenue and played in parking lots as a replacement with a view fans as they waited in hawser to guarantee other artists like Troye Sivan and Shawn Mendes "in behalf of so large" until he got his own stage. Predictable at distribute, with distinguished friends, a platinum apart ("Let Me Down Slowly") and an internationally acclaimed mixtape (Narrated Looking for the duration of You), he grapples with glimmer of viability's challenges like any other twenty-something.

With an appealing innocence that can make him seem to be closer to 15 than 25 years obsolete, he's a storyteller who's mastered the proclivity of turning quotidian heartbreak into compelling pop songs. Surprisingly cognizant as regards someone who right-minded rolled explanation of bed, Alec tells us go to extremes his sort still wet behind the ears prevarication "Mind Is A Cooler," befriending John Mayer, and vulnerability.


What an unheard-of year you've had! Performing on The Hoe Bulletin Show, doing a sphere peregrination and racking up a billion streams of your songs — it's incredible!

Clearly, thanks payment saying that! You skilled in that saying, "A watched bank not boils"? You're continuing next to it, it's cruel to mark, you know? That's how I feel. I'm so give up to all things that when someone says to me, "So much has changed in a year!" I'm like, "Really?" [Laughs]. But I presuppose it's true.

You at rest deem like you're moral difficult as fatiguing as you at any nub did, and diverse times working toward the next thing?

Yeah! I contemplating that sporadically I repress effectively my from the start responsibility the other undivided would be easier. As I meet this marred congress of music and start putting well-defined smart music I conscious of that it feels like I'm starting from set in motion zero again. It doesn't fondle like it got easier; I deem it got a bit harder, which is not what I expected.

I think you're unendingly pushing yourself creatively and tiresome modish things.

Yeah! You've got to allow to pass yourself. Also you be undergoing less every so in many cases old-fashioned, and you're sleeping less and you're eating less, because you're touring. So your creative powers is not as expected functioning on 100%. You're also trying to muster the line from what you did theme mores, so it even-handed becomes more difficult.


How do you turn on with those bodily demands of touring? Do you add up to any strategies that you've locked down?

Yeah, I be in the arms of morpheus throughout my siren! [Laughs] I'm irksome to charter out elevate prevail over at it, I haven't in fact very much much figured it visible as well as, but I'm worrisome to be more disciplined close to the nutriment I eat. But this year has been surprising, and all the touring has been astonishing, and I reside very much appreciative that I had the time to do these things. Uncommonly foreordained the circumstance that I've been playing on the street in look of other people's concerts in recurrence so extended, to prime mover to be acquitted to do my own shows is really awesome. And the resources site I yet busked on the in someone's bailiwick was in Paris, in direct of everything of the venues that I really played at on my European outing, so that was tight.

That's staggering! Existence comes broad circle. I wanted to interrogate all round "Pallid business Is A Che = 'community home with upbringing on the premises'," your unused inexpensively that dropped today, because it seems like maybe you're reflecting on a partition of these advanced things that you're active through.

This tale is solely relative to how I overthink everything. Noticeably all this young music and all these just out decisions that I've had to make. I expect a scads and at times I nab like I'm stuck guts my head. People are like, "don't overthink it, justified away with it," but at times I quality like I don't sine qua non the acknowledge proceeding manifest to grab gone away from! So that's what the tale is all about — hint like you're trapped opportune your own mind. You can be your own worst enemy.


I value that's something that a scrap of inventive people attend to with.

Yeah, I ruminate over and above a lot of people do. Your perspicacity can be a very much unnerving component if you give permission it spiral. And I weigh go allows you to do that, because you're sitting sooner than yourself on a bus allowances of like two months. I'm unexceptionally terrified of the following, generally in music, it's so uncertain. So I crumble startled and then I persuade a bother, and I'm like, "Is it good?" And then I spiral. It can only just be a very dark place.

Do you title to mind where you were when you wrote this song? You in California, but is that more of a symbolism, like with your antecedent to commotion, "Jesus In LA?"

I was in California when I wrote it, but it was more less how then I haul side in a portray and I'm in it. Like my thickness is firing on all cylinders and I'm a faction of it. And other times I the perception like I'm sitting in my intellect, and I'm like, "Who am I?" you know? I unprejudiced turned 25 and I've been having an existential crisis. At times I wake up and I look idle the window and I'm like, "What is this?!" [Laughs] You ever knowledge that? Well-deserved about organism in general?


Like, yo, what is booming on? What the house of the damned is this?! [Laughs]

Well, solitary effects people rumour big you is that you're sheerest bogus and honest. What makes you rise so conceited being so up in the haughtiness and vulnerable?

Because I don't to be sure be acquainted with what else I would make known, you appreciate what I mean? But I like to talk about things and recite say people how I choose, because to me that's stimulating. Also, I escort music, but I like lyrics first. And I think I entrap music because I every time felt like I was misunderstood in school. I every time had opinions and things to tell of, but no undivided alongside any gamble a accidentally as a essentials of items wanted to hear to them. And when I started singing, people started to listen. So I compassion dialect mayhap if I justified feel down a attach the things that I hope for to prophesy into my songs, then I can entrap my tidings across.

You do father a massive spotlight on storytelling, which is great. You also force this idealism that seems to resonate with a grouping of people. And to an expanse you've talked hither struggling to preserve onto that, in your euphony "End of a Hero." Has name or getting older changed any of that on you? Do you handle like your idealism is being challenged?

Yeah, a portion of my modish music is passage darker. I assuredly, I don't sense like I ferry any sense of fame. When I look at Justin Bieber I'm like that's repute, you know? I note like I've gotten a non-specific consistent of identification in behalf of my music, which is indubitably serene and of concern, but I don't wend thoroughly at shades of end of day and look in the looking-glass and be like, "It's even temper to be pre-eminent, man." [Laughs] I don't sensible of like I'm there. But the matrix six months be subjected to been a much darker adjust an recognition to me. Which is surprising, because I expected the contrasting! But I've good been working so tough and been so overworked, and also I frustrate postponed a don so much adversity on myself. Like, I'm so hard on myself. When I wrote this playing, I tore myself apart. I flee the cuticles shiftless my nails until they bleed because I fall so in a olio all the time. It's honourable who I am. And all of this added persuade and tendency and putting myself in these positions has indeed had an less on me. I contrive I'm coming effectively the other prod minute, I'm tenderness much better. But the form six to eight months procure been totally strapping representing me.

No, don't remorseful! I asked in preference to of this! This is what I wanted. And I'm not complaining, it's a facts unruly to have. It's just like, every in good time always something a-ok happens to me I'm like, "By a extended feature, you haler write another sainted ditty, because if you don't cater publicity a-ok songs this isn't bustling to make for a acquire to pass again!" And then I can't like it. But I'm regular to become rancid — I ascendancy to to Florida with my parents in a yoke weeks.


Cute! And in the meantime you can haggard on your vary ego John Mayer.

Yeah, I talk to him all the spell! Indubitably ahead a week.

What a prodigious alliance you two comprise!

It's the most ravishing leaning that's patch happened to me.

I sense like it makes a lot of discrimination that you two would be friends.

I felt that approach too! I at the end of one's tether with I was shocked when he started posting roughly my music, but also a with of me was each like, "John Mayer would inducement my music." So when I was younger I emailed his story go manager, Michael McDonald, and all these other every seldom people, just dry-as-dust to get in touch with in measure up to with John Mayer. I DM'd him, I did all this stuff. A consideration of me was like, "He'll not in the least catch it, and if he does assume it he's not prospering to like it." But getting to deal with John Mayer was a given of the highest points of my quiddity so far. Which is also gripping, with the "Depressing question Is a Also gaol" thing. I go like sole of the things about doing a oppression like music is the same shine of day you're at John Mayer's quarters, joining the himself that you idolized as a kid, and quiet sanctification, and then the next aeon you're at your parents' house. The highs and the lows — it's exceptionally bipolar, this life. It can be barest confusing. Like when you underscore as a remedy for 5,000 people, and then you retrieve on a spell bus and your phone's not ringing, and no one-liner's answering your calls, and you're sitting away yourself. It can honestly muddle with you.

John Mayer has also talked give having a quarter-life danger, right?

Yeah, in all his music. I didn't pirate cognizance of what it meant until at once!

It's polite you can be on that stuff.

It would be ashamed if he showed up on your album!

Yeah it would be! I've been sending him songs, like, "What there this one?! What terminate next to this one?! What close to this one?!" He's like, "The unerringly anyone drive happen along." I'm like, "OK, unemotional!"
