Sam Koechlin (aka Sam Himself) on Friday released his second album Never Let Me Go.

The new record, out now on Sony Music, follows the Swedish artist's impressive debut Power Ballads in 2021, and it includes the previously released songs "Mr. Rocknroll," "Golden Days" and the title track.

While his first album was reflective of an artist facing going home during the pandemic and facing his past, struggling with being locked away yearning to play music live again, this new record is glowing with renewal and inspired by a world reopening and sharing dance floors.

Koechlin says the album is “suspended between faith and fear, hope and its opposite ... equal parts plea and reckoning in more than name.”
