Following up his BBC Radio 1 Hottest Record in the World, “1000,” Ben Khan returns yet again with an impressive track. “Zenith” is the name, and it’s the second release off of his upcoming 1000 EP, due out May 11. This one serves up another welcomed dose of the sound we’ve come to know and love from Khan, emphasized by his sweeping melodies, distorted guitars, big synths and carefully-placed drums. Below, read what he told FADER about the song.
“A superhero goes to die by lying on the sun. Ashamed of what he has done, he begs his love for forgiveness so he can return. But his fate is sealed, and he slowly burns to death. What he has done is not to be made clear. The term ‘Zenith’ can be used to describe the highest point of ones success. But in this story, the Zenith reached is the astrological point where he meets his demise on the sun.”
