It’s a busy time for the US pop sensation, Boone also shared his new single, the aching, piano-driven Slow It Down earlier this week.

The Fireworks and Rollerblades world tour gets underway next month, starting with a run of sold-out North American shows before heading to Europe through May and June, and then Australia and New Zealand in September. The tour includes a long sold-out London show at the O2 Forum Kentish Town on 21 May. See HERE for a list of all international dates.

The ongoing success of Beautiful Things and news of his debut album continues a trend of big achievements for Benson, who has previously been named as an MTV Global PUSH Artist, an Amazon Music Breakthrough Artist and iHeartRadio’s On The Verge Artist. Meanwhile, last year’s PULSE EP generated tens of millions of streams for tracks like What Was, Little Runaway and Sugar Sweet. He headlined a sold-out headline tour across North America and Europe, and then ended the year with the release of his moving single To Love Someone.

In 2022, prior to the PULSE EP, Benson released the piano ballad Before You and the Walk Me Home… EP , which included his breakout single Ghost Town – his first entry on the US Billboard Hot 100 and a Top 25 hit at both Top 40 and Hot AC radio. It also became his first RIAA-certified Gold record, followed by In The Stars, which is now certified Platinum.
