Dan Owen has released his brand new single ‘Run Me Down’. The new song finds Dan making a bold return and is the first taste of new music since the release of his highly acclaimed debut album Stay Awake With Me last year.

Building on the sound from his debut album he brings a new roots-rock direction to his unmistakable jaw dropping vocal abilities.

The song reflects Dan’s development and journey, from the early days of playing pubs in his Shrewsbury hometown to becoming an international touring artist.

Having played across the world with the likes of Jake Bugg, Kaleo, Birdy, Alice Merton and Imelda May and completing numerous sold out headline tours across the UK, Europe and US, he has gained new perspectives, independence and direction along the way.

The ‘Run Me Down’ video finds Dan putting a dash of Hollywood into his Shrewsbury roots and captures an intense captivating road trip through the English countryside.

As one of the UK’s most exciting, highly praised and distinctive voices, Dan’s music has now clocked up over 30 million streams on Spotify alone. He has received great support from both Radio 1 and Radio 2 and massive critical acclaim.

Dan Owen has revealed the video for his acoustic piano version of ‘Icarus’, the latest track to be taken from his upcoming debut album, out later this year through Atlantic Records. In this new acoustic version, the rich instrumentation of the original gives way to haunting solo piano, accentuating the raw power of Owen’s vocals and transforming the track into an intimate and atmospheric account of despair and lamentation.

Released earlier this month, ‘Icarus’ is a dark and hard-hitting tale of drug abuse. The single itself features soaring guitars and expansive orchestral elements, as well as Dan Owen’s jaw-dropping vocals, and has already gained support from Radio 2. Listen to the original single HERE.

‘Icarus’ follows Dan’s previous singles ‘Made To Love You’ and ‘Hideaway’, all of which feature on his upcoming album. ‘Made To Love You’ has amassed over 10 million streams on Spotify, while his last single ‘Hideaway’ proved a highly praised radio hit. It was featured as ‘Record Of The Week’ at both Radio 1 and Virgin Radio, and also received support from Dermot O’Leary, Zoe Ball and Jo Whiley at Radio 2.

Dan has also just announced a headline show at London’s Jazz Café on May 29th and has been announced to play the main stage at Wilderness festivals this summer.

VIRGIN RADIO ‘RECORD OF THE WEEK’

Dan Owen has released the video for his brand new single ‘Hideaway’, out now through Atlantic Records.

The video sees Dan playing one half of an escaping couple, running from attackers through a menacing English countryside setting as they are caught up in an intense car chase and terrorised by snarling attack dogs.

‘Hideaway’ enlists huge blues riffs which bolster the mighty soulful tones of Dan’s jaw-dropping vocal abilities. The song is achieving widespread exposure with plays at Radio 2 from Dermot O’Leary, Zoe Ball and Joe Whiely, while it has also been featured as Virgin Radio’s recent ‘Record Of The Week’ and soundtracks the Boots No.7 televised and online advert.

Dan has gained critical acclaim across the world following his debut release on Atlantic Records with ‘Moonlight’ earlier this year. He has become a big live draw across the UK and Europe and has just completed a 16-date sold out headline tour, including a headline show at London’s OMEARA last night. He’s also played a number of high profile festivals this summer including Latitude and Barn On The Farm among many others.

With the release of ‘Hideaway’ we find the Shrewsbury singer at his most bold and determined yet, delivering an impressive statement as one of the most exciting new voices in the UK today. His debut album will be released next year.
