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

American Songwriter Magazine wrote that singer-songwriter Sean Rowe’s voice “has the kind of bellowing, resonant timbre that dreams come from.” Now Rowe has released a delightfully surreal video for the track “Newton’s Cradle” from his album New Lore out this April 7th.

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.
