Another day, another Zach Bryan teaser, it would seem.

For the initiated, we know that this uptick in posts and snippets means that another highly-anticipated record will likely be on the way soon, this time being his recently confirmed The Great American Bar Scene.

As he's been busy on his sold-out The Quittin' Time Tour this spring, Bryan has been treating fans nightly to unreleased tunes and long-awaited performances of songs like '28', 'Sandpaper' and the upcoming album's glorious title track.

However, on Friday (May 10), the beloved superstar shared the newest teaser for music to come with a special snippet that could be called 'Sparkling Towers.'

Though the lines are a bit hard to decipher from the clip, it opens with Bryan mid-song singing, "I ain't no victim to a naive boy's dreams," while the next line goes on to share how he wishes that an undisclosed person was there with him – who we can likely interpret to be his mom, who's often the muse for his more personal songs.

Going on to note that "it's a long road to heaven" and "a far drop to hell," Bryan continues on in the assumed chorus, which pushes his upper vocal register and surprises listeners with a full choir locked and loaded to assist him along the way as he belts about "sparkling towers that [he'll] never be able to see again."

Alongside the new tune, Bryan wrote explained that he wrote the poem-turned-song while sitting on a balcony along the ocean one night. He added: "I can’t wait for you guys to hear the album and I am so thankful for each and every one of you," signaling that perhaps The Great American Bar Scene isn't as far away as we originally thought.

Bryan is currently busy traversing the country, with stops lined up in Arkansas, Oklahoma and California to end out the month of May.

In just a week's time, the reigning New Male Artist of the Year will also be battling it out for a trio of trophies at the 2024 ACM Awards, including for Artist-Songwriter of the Year and Music Event of the Year for his Kacey Musgraves-graced duet, 'I Remember Everything.'

For the lyrics to 'Sparkling Towers' so far, see below:

"I ain't no victim to a naive boy's dreams
But I wish you were here now to see these damn old sparklin' thing
It's a long road to heaven, it's a far drop to hell
I'll probably outlive this fountain, I reckon time will tell
The stronger folks keep going no matter where they've been
And there are some sparkling towers that I'll never see again"
