WNYC PREMIERES NEW SEAN ROWE TRACK “SIGNS”

Today, July 17th New York public radio station WNYC will be premièring a new song from Sean Rowe’s upcoming album The Salesman and the Shark on their popular music show called Soundcheck. The song “Signs” utilizes an unconventional structure to suggest the feel of a dream involving Rowe’s departed father and a yearning for more time with those gone. Rowe’s new album comes out August 28th via Anti- Records.

To listen to Sean Rowe’s “Signs” care of WNYC, just go to: href="http://www.wnyc.org/shows/soundcheck/blogs/soundcheck-blog/2012/jul/17/check-ahead-sean-rowe-signs/">http://www.wnyc.org/shows/soundcheck/blogs/soundcheck-blog/2012/jul/17/check-ahead-sean-rowe-signs/>

The Salesman and the Shark is the anticipated follow up to Rowe’s critically heralded debut Magic. It was recorded at historic Vox Recording Studios in Los Angeles. It was produced by Woody Jackson, utilizing the very same mixing board used to make timeless classics such as The Rolling Stones Exile On Main Street, T-Rex’s Electric Warrior, The Beach Boy’s Smile and seminal works by Tom Waits, Neil Young and more.

Appropriately, the soulful and evocative sounds on Rowe’s latest are a perfect blend of the warmly familiar and astonishingly new. The songs move effortlessly between a sense of intimacy and a cinematic like sound complete with a nine piece string section. The entire album was recorded live in studio using only real instruments. The resulting work is ambitious and profoundly moving, a collection of songs that would feel at home on a cherished classic album, or as just what they are, a riveting tour de force by an important new talent named Sean Rowe.
