Phoenix-raised singer/songwriter Alec Benjamin  was  one of 2018's breakout artists, and fans have been eagerly awaiting what he has coming out in 2019.  After teasing the release of a new track on Twitter, the singer has officially released his first original song of 2019, "Must Have Been The Wind."  

"Must Have Been The Wind" is an acoustic, catchy pop song about supporting people, even if you don't know them - human kindness prevails. This is his first track since his debut mixtape,  Narrated For You.  In the song, Benjamin sings of hearing a woman crying, and when he goes to the second floor to check on her, she denies the accusation and says "… It must've been the wind." It's a wholesome track with plucky guitar chords paired with a simple beat. The new song is very true to Benjamin's sound, and really tugs at your heartstrings.  

Watch the official lyric video for Benjamin's fresh track below.

Later this summer, Benjamin is gearing up to perform at the Firefly Music Festival on June 22, Lollapalooza on Aug. 2, and Osheaga Festival in Montreal on Aug. 4. This fall, he will perform his largest U.S. headline shows at the Fonda Theatre in LA on Oct. 9, and at Terminal 5 in NYC on Friday, Oct. 25.
