Dan Mangan Shares New Video for “Fire Escape”

By: Staff –

Two time JUNO Award-winning singer-songwriter Dan Mangan is lighting up the summer with his new single, “Fire Escape”, available today via Arts & Crafts.

Produced by Drew Brown (Radiohead, Beck, Charlotte Gainsbourg) and featuring an all-star backing combo comprised of Brown, Joey Waronker (Beck, R.E.M., Roger Waters), Jason Falkner (Air, Jenny Lewis, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds), and Susumu “Zongamin” Mukai (Floating Points, Vanishing Twin), “Fire Escape” is joined by an equally star-studded official music video, directed by filmmaker Lester Lyons-Hookham and co-starring actors Steven Ogg (The Walking Dead, Better Call Saul) and Allison Wright (The Americans, Snowpiercer). Watch it below.

“‘Fire Escape’ is about our unshakable longing to be seen, heard, and understood,” says Mangan. “When everyone was isolated at home I became enamored with the idea of fire escapes becoming a gathering place, a way to connect with your neighbors. I love the idea that even in the very worst of circumstances or with limited resources, humans will find a way to feel unity.”

“Fire Escape” heralds Mangan’s sixth studio album, due via Arts & Crafts later this year.

2022 will also see Mangan returning to the road for an international live schedule, including Canadian dates through the summer. A major UK/EU tour begins November 9 at Dublin, Ireland’s world famous Whelan’s and then making stops in England, Scotland, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Switzerland, France, and Belgium through early December.
