“How To Be A Man” is a delicately constructed record on which Benny bears the deepest recesses of his psyche, wrestling with notions of manhood and coming to terms with the hollowness he’s been left with after chasing temporary highs. The song’s instrumentation carries a sanctified nature, its tender piano chords laying the foundation before opening into a glorious symphony that mirrors Benny’s self-reflection.

In his lyrics, Benny examines topics including self-forgiveness, addiction, and the difficulties faced when changing self-destructive behavior patterns. The song is as gentle as it is powerful, with Benny’s heartfelt vocal performance shining a light on things that had been hidden in the dark.

With the release of “How To Be A Man,” Benny Atlas is ready to make his mark as an artist on the rise in the modern soul and R&B space. Furthermore, “How To Be A Man” will be featured on Benny’s debut mixtape, “Better Now You Know,” due out on April 12th via TLD Records.
