Sean McConnell Announces ‘A Horrible Beautiful Dream’

LifeInASong_UK

Sean McConnell has shared the debut single from his upcoming album, A Horrible Beautiful Dream (coming August 6th), “The 13th Apostle,” featuring The Wood Brothers

“‘The 13th Apostle,’ to me, represents anyone who feels like a black sheep,” says McConnell. “He/she is only the ‘outcast’ because they can’t or won’t fall in line with something they don’t believe, yet they still love the baby despite the bath water.”

Adds The Wood Brothers’ Oliver Wood, “I’ve always known Sean to be an incredibly smart and soulful songwriter, but he’s really taken it up a notch and his voice is stronger than ever. Excited about this record and honored to be included.”

A Horrible Beautiful Dream’s 13 songs, all born during the pandemic, also includes collaborations with Fancy Hagood, Natalie Hemby, Audra Mae and Dan Tyminski.

“Time seems to breed creativity, especially when there’s very little else going on,” McConnell says of the slowdown brought about by the events of 2020. “This period has forced everybody, internally and externally, globally and socially, to take a good look at our lives and examine it.

“Everything from our marriages to our workout routines, social injustice to planet politics and religion, spirituality and our internal environment… everything has come to the surface,” McConnell notes. “It’s been the tipping point of so many things right now, so obviously that bleeds over into art and music.”

Sean penned 11 of the album’s 13 tracks on his own (and co-wrote the two others).
