BRIAN OWENS GIVES FANS TASTE OF FORTHCOMING ALBUM WITH
DOUBLE SINGLE RELEASE
“Cool Water (Justice Runs Down Like)” and “Sparrow” set for release May 24, 2019
Available NOW on Amazon!
NASHVILLE, TN (May 23, 2019) — Acclaimed soul singer/songwriter Brian Owens is announcing the debut of “Cool Water (Justice Runs Down Like)” and “Sparrow” from his forthcoming album, LOVE CAME DOWN. Each song will be available at all major streaming and retail digital download outlets including Amazon, Google Play, iTunes and Spotify beginning May 24, 2019.
“Cool Water (Justice Runs Down Like)” is an inspiring composition co-written by Owens and “Sparrow” is a loving cover of a rare tune by Marvin Gaye. Both songs feature jazz trumpet virtuoso and fellow St. Louisan Keyon Harrold, percussion ace Daniel Sadownick and an all-star rhythm section comprised of Peter Martin, Jon Cowherd, Steve Potts, Sherrod Barnes and Stephan Crump, affectionately named The Royal Five.
Prior to their official release, “Cool Water” and “Sparrow” made their exclusive global premiere May 18 on BBC Radio 6, hosted by renowned tastemaker and influencer Gilles Peterson. “It was a delight to play these two new songs from Brian. This is what soul is all about to me — retaining the class of yesteryear with the message of now.”
Owens continues his mission to inspire through music on each song, delivering uplifting messages over classic, impeccably arranged grooves reminiscent of some of Marvin Gaye’s finest work, Quincy Jones’ jazz aesthetic and other touchstones.
“‘Cool Water’ and ‘Sparrow’ are a true reflection of life’s beauty and trials,” Owens says. “For me, these songs are a constant reminder of what justice and beauty are really all about: GOD.”
LOVE CAME DOWN is a joint release by Owens’ nonprofit L.I.F.E. Arts and Purpose Music Group through the generous support of Steward Family and Salem United Methodist Church. The album was recorded at the famous Royal Recording Studios in Memphis by Grammy-winning engineers Jay Newland and Boo Mitchell and produced by Grammy-winner Brian Michel Bacchus. Among many notable projects, Bacchus provided A&R for Norah Jones’ Come Away With Me, which received eight Grammy Awards and sold over 30 million units. Other notable productions by Bacchus include Gregory Porter’s Be Good and the Grammy award-winning Liquid Spirit. Scheduled for release later this year, LOVE CAME DOWN will be the first new music from Owens since the 2017 release of his highly praised SOUL OF CASH.
