Zach Bryan continues to lay the foundations for his hotly anticipated follow-up to American Heartbreak, with the Oklahoma artist posting another song snippet to his socials.
In the latest teaser, Bryan dissipates the heartbroken air that pervaded hits such as ‘Something in the Orange’ and ‘Summertime Blues’, in favour of a warmer, optimistic portrayal of romance.
In the snippet, Bryan serenades his lover, “You're the queen of Carolina and Oklahoma too/The stars in Calabasas ain't burning bright as you/Those waves crashing down on the Eastern coast/When the day's cooling off and the summertime's close”.
He celebrates the feeling of escaping the harsh realities of the world as he spends time at home with his girlfriend (“The law don’t ever come back here and I/reckon they don’t try/I just put some beer on ice/Let’s just dance for a moment or two”).
It runs in a similar vein to Bryan's previous teaser, which he posted as part of a tribute to his girlfriend, Debbie Peifer, to coincide with their one-year anniversary.
In tandem with the release of Zach Bryan's surprise Christmas Day live album, All My Homies Hate Ticketmaster (Live From Red Rocks), Bryan briefly shared the music video for another new song, ‘Dawns’, featuring Maggie Rogers. The video has since been removed.
The driving, anthemic track is expected to be released in the coming weeks, ahead of Bryan's upcoming studio album, Writers and Fighters, which he confirmed would arrive around February.
