Sean Rowe Premieres New Song At

Singer-songwriter Sean Rowe is premiering a new song from his Anti- Records debut album Magic at today. The song, entitled "Jonathan," features Rowe's distinctive and evocative baritone offering images of burning cars "I lit the dash, I took my sunglasses off, I like to see the fucker burn" alongside moments of melancholic innocence. "Remember after school at the skyler park, trading in our stories for the dark" - the whole track propelled by a powerful and dramatic blast of blue eyed soul. As Rowe explains, "A song like "Jonathan" is pretty dark stuff but it's also about trying to connect, trying to grab people.'" And that it does. You can download the song at

Rowe's album Magic will be in stores 02-22.

Earlier this month Rowe made an appearance on the popular New York public radio show "Soundcheck" where he thrilled listeners with a performance of the mournful ballad "Wet' and the atmospheric gospel tinged "Old Black Dodge" from this upcoming album Magic.
