Dan Owen releases new single 'Stay Awake With Me'

Dan Owen has released the title track of his forthcoming debut album Stay Awake With Me due for release on August 17th.

‘Stay Awake With Me’ is a beautiful ballad written as an ode to Dan’s beloved grandfather, who passed away just before Christmas last year, and is written from the point of view of his grandmother – the pair met at an army base in Berlin as teenagers and spent 50 years together.

The new song is the title track and latest to be taken from Dan’s forthcoming debut album and follows the release of the critically acclaimed singles ‘Made To Love You’, ‘Icarus’, ‘Hideaway’ and ‘What Is A Man’.

‘Made To Love You’ has amassed over 12 million streams on Spotify, while ‘Icarus’, ‘Hideaway’ and ‘What Is A Man’ have all proved hits at radio with support for the singles coming from Radio 2, Radio 1 and Virgin Radio.

Stay Awake With Me is informed by the 25 year-old’s worldly journey, which has seen him sell out numerous headline shows across the UK and Europe, perform for politicians at Westminster and party with Willie Nelson in Nashville. Inspired by life-changing moments such as helping a friend through a period of domestic abuse, to the loss of his Grandfather and a tragic carpentry accident which left Dan blind in one eye, his songwriting is touching hearts across the world.

He’ll be bringing these stories to life live once again during his largest headline tour, and also at Wilderness Festival this year where he will play the Main Stage on August 3rd along with a number of further summer festivals across the UK and Europe. UK tour dates can be found below:
