As previously reported, former Girls frontman Christopher Owens is currently at-work on the follow-up to his 2013 solo debut, Lysandre. Already he’s shared the tender and twangy “It Comes Back To You”, and today he unveils a second new track, entitled “Stephen”.
While Owens is drawing upon the same country-fried sense of heartache and forlorn, “Stephen” is almost his version of a hymn. There’s lots of lush group harmonies, that tender gospel piano, and just a tinge of hope and optimism in Owen’s otherwise mournful croon.
Listen in below. Also, check out Owens’ new promo pic above, which makes him look like the indie rock George Strait.
