The new song and its official lyric video arrived June 13.
Alec Benjamin first made fans fall in love by getting vulnerable on his breakout hit "Let Me Down Slowly," but his latest release flips the narrative. The 25-year-old singer-songwriter reaches out a hand to a neighbor in need in "Must Have Been the Wind," which arrived on June 13.
The song begins with just an acoustic guitar as Benjamin details a fight he hears from the apartment above him, with airy production coming in on the chorus, when he asks the neighbor girl if everything is okay. "'Wish I could tell you about the noise/ But I didn't hear a thing,'" he recalls before diving into the song's undulating hook. "She said, 'It must have been the wind, must have been the wind/ Must have been the wind, it must have been the wind."
"Must Have Been the Wind" is Benjamin's first new track since his debut mixtape Narrated For You, which he released in November. Two days after releasing the tune, Benjamin promised fans on social media that more new music is "coming soon."
