"Madman"

Check it out: "Madman," a new song by Sean Rowe, embedded above. It's off a new album set for release in September.

The "Madman" video was inspired by the string of house shows Rowe has been playing over the last year. That tour has apparently shifted how the Troy native thinks about things, and prompted him to set up a "pledge" campaign ahead of the new album's release:

The thing that hit me like a brick with this house show tour is how different it made me look at the relationship with my fans and how real it felt to leave the bullshit mentality of the musical mainstream. This Pledge campaign is for us. This is where we can communicate and where you can be a part of my new record and this whole idea that we can really connect with the music.

The campaign -- which strikes us as being a bit like public radio, and a bit like Kickstarter -- is offering pre-orders and other items for sale. Among the premiums: $10 pre-order with early album access, to $200 for Rowe to make a prank call for you, to $1,500 for "the ultimate foraging / house concert extravaganza." (Rowe is an expert wild edibles forager.)

Rowe's house show tour is still rolling along -- in fact, he's set to play a handful of private shows here in the Capital Region this month.

Love the feel of this new song. Well done!
