Sean Rowe Launches New Video For "Newton's Cradle"

Rowe explains the meaning behind the clip, which was directed by Matt Dayak. "When I was writing the lyrics of the song I kept thinking about the Newton's cradle--you know, that toy that you set off and it reacts back and forth. And it reminded me of a relationship, of fighting, of that feeling when you just keep setting each other off, making each other crazy and all you want to do is walk away. When we shot the video I wanted to show that feeling you feel in an argument like the whole world is coming down around you and you feel like you're losing your mind a bit. We had a lot of fun with the masks and props and the different settings. I wanted to do something different, and we nailed that.”

New Lore’s simple yet powerful sound focuses on Rowe’s renowned baritone and evocative songwriting, delivering a collection of affecting stories of desperation and resilience. His voice is beautifully augmented throughout by tasteful arrangements including flourishes of piano and a string section. The album was recorded in the city of Memphis at the historic Sam Phillips Recording studio and produced by Matt Ross-Spang.

It is a sound that echo’s Rowe’s recent crossover hit “To Leave Something Behind,” a song that resonated with a whole new wider audience after being featured in the Ben Affleck film 'The Accountant.’

Rowe has announced a series of North American live performances.
