We are excited to announce the release of The Starlighter, a new album of songs adapted from the children's music book "Lullabies and Night Songs." The Starlighter is available exclusively for purchase on Amazon Music and streaming through Amazon Music Unlimited and Prime Music.
"The Starlighter" video is a visual companion to the album. The 8-song film is based on Victorian paper theatres and the illustration style of children’s books from the same era and was created by the Manchester, UK/Los Angeles-based motion design studio WeFail. Each scene contains over one hundred layered illustrations, and every element in the video was drawn using a digital tablet before being animated by hand. Shawn’s character in the video consists of 30 individual hand-drawn pieces, each digitally painted before motion design was applied to create the complete figure. Members of Amazon Prime or Amazon Music can stream the video here




In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Grammy-winning A Few Small Repairs, Columbia/Legacy Recordings has released an expanded edition of the album. This special anniversary edition features seven rare live performances culled from the Sony Music archives, plus enhanced artwork including newly-written liner notes by Shawn and producer John Leventhal and recently discovered archival photos. The 20th Anniversary Edition of A Few Small Repairs is available in CD, 12" vinyl and digital configurations, all featuring the original album remastered with seven bonus audio tracks. This is the album’s first-ever vinyl release!
