#602 Benjamin Clementine – I Won’t Complain

Usually I’m against the concept of special editions of albums coming out a few months after the original – a blatant push to get fans to fork out cash all over again for a couple of extra tracks. But if one album perhaps deserved the treatment it was Benjamin Clementine’s wonderful Mercury Prize-winning debut At Least For Now. It was released in relative obscurity – available in only a handful of record shops – before the Mercury’s lifted it into the limelight, and it there then followed a frantic period where shops scrambled to actually get it in stock – something now solved by a deluxe version with four extra tracks. Clementine recently unveiled the video for ‘I Won’t Complain’ from the expanded edition, so if you’ve not already done so, enjoy it here.
