With a headline tour of the UK just beginning, Sean McGowan has released latest single Autopilot. Taken from his acclaimed debut album Son Of The Smith, Auto Pilot tells a tale to lost loves and the pitfall-strewn pathway that lies beyond a bitter break up.  One of the singer’s most emotionally complex and endearingly confessional outings to date, Auto Pilot weaves interloping guitar lines around a driving beat.

Speaking about the themes of the song, Sean says: “Autopilot came from the realisation that drinking culture can be extremely toxic. I noticed most music I listened to was painting boozing as an escape and actually doing much more harm than good. ‘Everything has gone to shit – let’s go get drunk and pretend everything is OK’ is all well and good sometimes and often part of healing processes. But, if that’s your answer every time you inevitably spiral downwards. I wanted to write about a particular experience of mine with booze, honestly. It’s great fun to play live.”

Son Of The Smith is available now from Xtra Mile Recordings and can be ordered here.
