Ben Böhmer and Lykke Li deliver a shimmering collaboration with “Hiding”

Ben Böhmer and Lykke Li, both award-winning musicians with unique musical styles, have come together for a dazzling collaboration on “Hiding,” the second single from Böhmer’s studio album, Bloom. This highly anticipated album is set to be released on September 27 via Ninja Tune.

An immaculate meeting point between indie, pop, and electronica, “Hiding” is flooded with Ben‘s lush pads and triumphant melodies, while Lykke Li‘s iconic vocals wash over crisp breakbeats.

“It’s a song that I’ve always wanted to write” Ben remarks on the new release. The single continues to forge Ben’s path beyond the pre-fabricated boxes that he’s been put into as an artist, earning the trust of indie royalty such as Lykke Li. A rare feature, “Hiding” is her first original collaboration since 2019.

Throughout her 20+-year career, Li has worked with artists such as Drake, U2, Skrillex, and Mark Ronson, who once called her the “high priestess of heartbreak and sadness.” She’s earned multiple Grammys in Sweden and is among the most heralded names in indie pop by the most trusted names in music, such as Billboard, Pitchfork, NME, and The Guardian. Her music has soundtracked films, including Twilight; she has also acted in the crime thriller Tommy and Terrence Malick‘s Song to Song.

Ben is fresh off several major performances, including festivals such as Sonar by Night and Electric Forest, and serving as direct support for ODESZA at The Gorge, BMO Stadium, and Madison Square Garden.

Looking ahead, he’ll round out his North American tour with stops at Lollapalooza and Portola before embarking on an Australian tour, where he’ll perform in music halls across Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne. Then, he’ll head back to Europe for a string of fall shows, including a stop at the Great Hall of Alexandra Palace.
