Mitch Rowland has announced his debut album, ‘Come June’, set to be released on October 6th through Giant Music/Erskine Records.
The news comes alongside the album’s title track, which is streaming now.
Rowland, who moved to Los Angeles from Ohio in 2013 with dreams of a music career, found his big break in 2016. Working as a dishwasher at a pizza place and on the brink of giving up his dream, he was offered the opportunity to collaborate with Harry Styles on his debut album. This collaboration proved to be a turning point, resulting in hits like ‘Meet Me In The Hallway’, ‘Watermelon Sugar’, and ‘Golden’, and earning Rowland a spot in Styles’ touring band. It was here that he met his future wife, drummer Sarah Jones.
‘Come June’ represents a significant step in Rowland’s artistic journey. The album, which was conceived in 2019, was primarily written during the pandemic, a time that provided Rowland with the solitude he needed for inspiration. The title track, ‘Come June’, was the first song he demoed, and it remained in its demo form until the end of the album’s production.
Rowland recalls, “We were near the end of making this album, and this song came back to me. It wasn’t part of the plan because of how it was originally recorded with harder drums and bigger guitars – I never pictured it with the rest of the songs. But after some re-approaching and re-recording everything, this song started to mean something again. I guess you could say this is a song for Sarah.”
