Benjamin Clementine has announced the release of debut album At Least For Now, and shared the video for single "Nemesis".

He's been popular in Paris for a while, but is only very recently garnering similar attention in his home nation. The press release explains his Hollywood-worthy tale:

"Benjamin Clementine has packed a lot into his 25 years: heartbreak, homelessness, reinvention, before reaching cult status in Paris and returning home in unlikely circumstances. Raised in Edmonton, his household was a strictly religious one, where children were barred from the living room unless it was a weekend dinner ("my parents, even though they were quite devilish, acted like Christians, and we weren't allowed to play anything other than gospel music”)."

The North London singer-songwriter, inspired by those formative restrictions, classical radio and the Anthony and The Johnsons, has also announced a headline date at the Barbican on 1 April to support the release of his debut.

At Least For Now is due for release via Virgin EMI on 23 March.

The clip is directed by Grammy-nodded FRED&NICK. Have yourselves a watch below.
