Lee DeWyze keeps getting better and better as a songwriter. The American Idol season 9 winner has just released his new single. Titled “The Breakdown,” the song is a haunting ballad which delves into the aftermath of a painful breakup.
After stints with Vanguard and Shanachie Records, and ever since the artist’s “Blackbird Song” was chosen for a key scene in The Walking Dead, Lee has seen more than 30 placements in television shows and commercials.
Additionally, Lee recently landed a publishing deal at SONGS, the outfit that’s home to The Weeknd, Diplo, Lorde, and DJ Mustard.
Check out the studio version of “The Breakdown” below. Lee is currently on tour, where you can check out a live version of “The Breakdown.” One of the tour’s many dates include a return trip to perform a special acoustic concert at the the Ohio State Reformatory on August 27 where Shawshank Redemption was filmed.
