Music for a Rainy Day: Watch McClean "Broken

McLean perfectly puts into music what a sad, rainy Fall day can feel like.

Check out McClean's video for his major label debut, "Broken." The song is anything but new. The break-up tear-jerker first hit the mighty internets as an independent release in 2006 and has since then accrued over 20 million hits across major social networking sites, including YouTube and MySpace.

Now, McClean is getting a major push from Atlantic Records in the hope it will propel him to the top of the international pop charts. "Broken" perfectly spotlights the British singer's refined, velvety soul vocals that are both powerful and sensitive. It's that rare combination that makes "Broken" such an outstanding performance.

McClean, who is the son of Lovers Rock legend John McClean, is currently working in London on his debut LP.  Together with Asylum/Atlantic Records, the crooner has assembled an A-list team of collaborators, including Fraser T Smith, two times GRAMMY-winning producer Phil Tan (Usher, Rihanna, Snoop, Jay-Z) and Will.I.Am's right-hand studio man Dylan ‘3d” Dresdow. “Fraser brought a real old skool soul classiness to the album. It draws on modern R&B with programmed synths, right through to classic live instrumentation.  But it’s soul all the way through,” explains McLean in a press release.
