Rising singer-songwriter, Rowan Drake has released his new single, “Still As The Night” via Arthouse Records/Atlantic Records. Written and produced by Drake and Jonny Shorr (GAYLE, Catie Turner), the haunting track arrives alongside an official visualizer, which can be seen now below.
“‘Still As The Night’ is the recollection of a period of time where I lost all control in my life,” says Rowan Drake. “The world was weighing down on me. I felt all the purpose draining from my life. In that time, I just prayed someone would come and take control over my existence. I didn’t want to be in charge. I was numb, alone, confused. The song is an expression of that time. It speaks to the feeling you get when you look in the mirror and don’t understand how you are the same person as your former self. The former self that seemed to be so much happier, so much more at peace in the world.”
“Still As The Night” follows the recent release of Drake’s debut EP, Dear Ella. Currently boasting close to 20M combined worldwide streams, the EP includes such heartbreaking and reflective tracks as “Lover Come Back to Me,” “Momentary Feelings,” and “How Do I Love Again,” all of which are accompanied by unique visuals.
This week Drake will showcase “Still As The Night” and other fan favorites with a series of Southern California live dates supporting singer-songwriter Alex Warren’s first-ever headline shows, including dates at San Diego, CA’s Voodoo Room, West Hollywood, CA’s famed Troubadour, and Santa Ana, CA’s Constellation Room.
