BEN KWELLER OFFERS EXCLUSIVE NEW SONG DOWNLOAD ON ESQUIRE.COM TODAY
Today Ben Kweller, in conjunction with Esquire Magazine and its April issue (on newsstands nationwide March 23), is offering an exclusive, free download of his song “It All Happened” on the magazine’s Web site. For this issue, Esquire Magazine asked five of its favorite musicians – Dierks Bentley, Charlie Mars, Bob Schneider, Griffin House, and Ben Kweller – to come to the Shack-Up Inn in Clarksdale, Mississippi and take part in a two-day fashion shoot with world-famous photographer Danny Clinch. To make things interesting, Esquire also asked each of the musicians to take the “Esquire Songwriting Challenge” which called for each artist to write, perform, and record an original song with lyrics that include the phrase “Somewhere in Mississippi.” For some of the musicians, this became the title of their song and they used it time and again. For others, they used the phrase once before heading in another direction. The results are five songs as unique and entertaining as the men who created them.

Since March 29, Esquire.com has been offering one song per day from these musicians to its site readers. For anyone who misses the individual downloads, a complete EP of all five songs will also be available as a free download on Monday, April 5. After that, the full songs will no longer be available on Esquire.com (or anywhere else).
