Ed’s New Single: The Worst Of It, is Ed Bennett’s second single on Marquee Records, following on from Small Stuff his debut single. It was the last song to be recorded for Ed’s album sessions, “Worlds Between,” due for release later this year. Recorded very quickly with producer Michael Smith capturing the songs raw urgency. Of the song Ed has this to say, “its not the hardest song to play, but that being said, I wanted to get back to the stuff that I really wanted to do which is showcasing my guitar playing within Rock “N” Roll songs. Not to get into personal detail but the song itself is just about general angst, whatever form it may find you in life, as well as dealing with it and getting over it.”
