The UK’s rising star Dan Owen – who Music Republic Magazine tipped for big things when we launched back in December 2016 – has today (16th Feb) released his fabulous brand new single “Icarus”. The bold new song features soaring guitars and expansive orchestral strings while Dan Owen’s jaw-dropping rasping vocal abilities deliver a dark and hard-hitting story about drug abuse.
“Icarus” is the latest track to be taken from his upcoming debut album, due to be released this summer (2018) through Atlantic Records. The record also features the highly acclaimed singles”‘Made To Love You”, “Hideaway” and “Moonlight”.
“Made To Love You” has amassed more than 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 BBC Radio 2.
Dan Owen is a sought-after live draw and has sold-out a number of headline tours across the UK and Europe. His most recent headline run saw the singer sell out London’s OMEARA and he has more headline shows to announce shortly.
Before this, Dan will be hitting the road with Alice Merton on her nine-date European tour in March, 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.
