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.
Before this Dan will be hitting the road with Alice Merton on her nine-date European tour next month, which starts with a show at London’s Hoxton Bar & Kitchen on March 6th. Following this Dan will play a six-date European tour with Joseph J. Jones in May. Full tour dates can be found below:
