We had the pleasure of interviewing Ben Schuller over Zoom video!

Nashville-based singer, songwriter, and producer Ben Schuller releases his new song “Full Throttle,” the latest single and 8th “chapter” from his forthcoming album ‘New Roaring 20s.’ Watch the official video for “Full Throttle” here.

“Full Throttle” is a moody, beat-driven track that sees the central character on ‘New Roaring 20s’ coming to terms with his self-destructive choices. Read more about the new song in Ben’s recent interview with Variance Magazine.

“‘Full Throttle’ is about realizing that you’re heading full speed down a destructive path, but you can’t stop,” says Ben. “Building off the themes from my last chapter, ‘Blueberry Diamonds,’ this track hits a more somber tone. My character has all but accepted the inevitable crash.”

‘New Roaring 20s’ is Schuller’s stark and revealing manifesto about growing up as a digital native under the microscope of the internet. The album unflinchingly examines how being a social media star has affected the trajectory of his life, for better or worse – and as a prominent YouTuber with over 3 million followers, Schuller knows a thing or two about two about the topic. Hear more about Ben’s story during his recent interview with SwitchboxTV.

UPROXX said Schuller has “an ear for pop’s current sound,” calling him a rising pop star of 2021, and Hollywood Life called ‘New Roaring 20s’ an “introspective look at what it’s like to be raised by the Internet.”

‘New Roaring 20s’ will be released in full this spring. Stay tuned for more from Ben Schuller.
