Songs For You will feature five songs that Ben wrote at the piano in his home. The EP will be released on October 15 and you can pre-order the first single, “11:11″ right now.

Ben said in a statement, “I’m fascinated in acting by the duality of people, and that we all have the capacity to feel everything and more than one emotion at a time. I feel that way too about my songs. Even if they seem to be about one thing, I’m interested in conflicting emotion and transitional feelings…the in-between. ‘11:11’ is about real love; the kind of love where you would give up all your wishes for the one you love to feel whole…even if it costs you, even if they can’t ‘be yours.’”

A teaser trailer for the upcoming “11:11″ video was released and it looks like the visual will star Ben‘s Westworld co-star Evan Rachel Wood.

Ben sang a famous theme song at his piano a couple months ago.
