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.
