American singer-songwriter Sean Rowe will be releasing a new album entitled New Lore that will be out via Anti- on April 7th.It follows 2014’s Madman. The album was recorded in the city of Memphis at the historic Sam Phillips Recording studio and produced by Matt Ross-Spang. “Gas Station Rose” is the first excerpt.
“I wrote the melody while in Las Vegas,” Rowe explains, “I knew there was something to the song because I loved to play it. Lyrically it’s about overcoming obstacles and looking for a place to hang your hat. The characters in the story are in it together. It’s not easy but it’s worth it. The line, “we are the elders of our minds” means that we control our own destiny, that it’s what we believe about ourselves that determines where we go.”
