For fans of Dan + Shay, it must feel like it's been virtually ‘10,000 Hours’ since they last got a taste of new music from the much-loved Grammy-winning country-popstars.
However, they now have cause for celebration, because Dan + Shay have announced they have a brand new album arriving on September 15. The upcoming project, entitled ‘Bigger Houses’, will feature three immediately released songs, ‘Save Me The Trouble’, ‘Heartbreak On The Map’ and the record's title-track.
Bigger Houses will be the first full-length studio album from the chart-topping duo since they dropped Good Things in 2021, which spawned fan-favourites such as ‘Steal My Love’, ‘Glad You Exist’, ‘I Should Probably Go To Bed’ and the Justin Bieber-assisted ‘10,000 Hours’.
Judging by the trio of new singles, it seems Bigger Houses will follow in similar sonic footsteps to Good Things, with Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney once again showcasing their sleek, flawless harmonies on ‘Heartbreak On The Map’ and ‘Save Me The Trouble’ in particular.
Their 2023 record will seemingly be peppered with another array of feel-good, balladic tracks, with the lead singles all being underpinned by infectious, pop-infused instrumentals.
Nonetheless, it appears Bigger Houses will also explore new themes, with Dan + Shay settling into their lives as happily married men. The title-track in particular revolves around the uplifting realisation that life isn't about ‘keeping up with the Joneses’ (“The thing about happiness I've found is / It don't live in bigger houses”).
