Acclaimed singer/songwriter Sean McConnell has announced his new album ‘Secondhand Smoke’ out on February 8th, 2019 via Big Picnic Records and available for pre-order now (PledgeMusic / iTunes). McConnell will also kick off his 2019 U.S. headlining tour on March 7th, 2019 in Carrboro, North Carolina. The 20+ city tour also includes stops in Richmond, New York, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Chicago, Dallas and Nashville.
‘Secondhand Smoke’ is a 13-song cohesive collection of modern folk music asking provocative questions about how we become who we are, what and whom we love, and the growth, pain, and freedom that come with accepting that some answers might elude us forever. “The older I get, the more I find that is what it’s all about––that there is no way to answer it all,” McConnell says. “Being comfortable with mystery is a positive thing in all aspects of our lives. I definitely explore that in these songs.”
The album’s gorgeous title track and first single was recently cited in Rolling Stone’s “10 Best Country/Americana Songs of the Week (10/19). Check out the song HERE.
Produced, recorded and written by McConnell in his Nashville home studio, ‘Secondhand Smoke’is a striking intimate portrait of life’s intricacies. “These are stories that people are familiar with,” adds McConnell, “and they steer the ship in a certain direction, then leave you off at this ocean of possibilities that we didn’t plan on the story taking us to.”
