Avant-pop musician Ben Gregory returns with the announcement of his deeply introspective and poignant new project, Bodied.

Bodied, is an intimate collection of songs detailing the complex relationship we have with our own bodies. These songs emerged during a transformative phase in Gregory’s life, following his relocation to study in Manchester following a deeply personal period marked by a mental health breakdown. The EP represents a move in thematic material, with Gregory delving into the universally relatable concept of our physical selves – a departure from his intimate and autobiographical debut album, episode.

Ben Gregory offers a glimpse into the project today with the release of single "Memoriam".

“"Memoriam" is a song centred on disillusionment over the organs one is granted at birth. During my life I've been saddened by certain archetypes I've felt it impossible to escape: I appreciate such struggles are all-consuming for many people who must remain stoic and indefatigable under the impossible weight of their own forms," Gregory says. "These songs are about bodies and their (non)pliability; trying to lie oblique against archaic parameters; engendering a landscape in which your child need not question which mask they'll wear tomorrow.”


  1. In A Certain Light We All Look The Same
  2. Memoriam
  3. Heart
  4. Pale Pregnant King

Bodied is set for release on 20 October via Transgressive, and is available to pre-order.
