Pop powerhouse Ben Hazlewood is ramping up to his new EP, EOS, with the release of a new single, the catchy and impassioned “Sail Away” which premiered on Friday with Impose Magazine.
Originally conceived over a bottle of rum and pirate shanties, “Sail Away” dug it’s nails into Hazlewood and stuck with him through out multiple revisions until it was fully realized into the powerful track now released.
“‘Sail Away’ is a journey of letting go, which is the hardest thing to do after fighting for so long to keep the dream alive. It’s when the natural resistance to admit defeat sets in and provokes taking that one chance to move forward instead of waiting for the change that may never come.”

“Sail Away” is the second release from EOS, following up “Drive On” which was premiered last November via Breath Heavy. EOS will be released in the spring of 2017 and is the successor to Hazlewood’s summer 2016 EP, VANTA.
