Dan + Shay Announces New Album “Bigger Houses”, Shares New Song “Save Me The Trouble”
American country pop music duo Dan + Shay, consisting of Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney, has announced fifth studio album “Bigger Houses” will be released on September 15, 2023 Warner Music Nashville.
The album comprises 12-track, produced by Dan Smyers and Scott Hendricks.
Dan Smyers said of the album, “Some of our records have been more pop- or hip-hop/R&B-infused. On this record, I wanted to make tracks that we could hop up at any bar anywhere with our live band and play the songs as they were recorded. Ultimately, this music, this whole album, is something that I'll be able to look back on in a decade or two and be really proud of the way it turned out.”
From the album, the duo released three new songs “Save Me The Trouble”, “Heartbreak On The Map” and “Bigger Houses”.
“Save Me the Trouble” was written by Ashley Gorley, Dan Smyers, Jordan Minton, Jordan Reynolds and Shay Mooney.
The accompanying music video was directed by P. Tracy.
- Dan Smyers said of the song, “I don't think I've ever been prouder of a song that I am this one. We wanted to have something that was a real moment, and when we started writing this, it felt like it could be something big. I wanted every section to build, and even in the second chorus, when you're like, 'Okay, there's no way it could possibly get any crazier,' then Shay takes off even further.”
Shay Mooney said on the video of Audacy, “This is the very first song off of a new project, which I feel like marks a new era - Just a new way of going about our lives and our career, which I'm very excited about.”
“Heartbreak On The Map” was written by Dan Smyers, ERNEST and Jimmy Robbins.
“Bigger Houses” is the album title track and was written by Dan Smyers, Jordan Reynolds, Jordan Minton and Andy Albert.
The duo said of the song, “We named the album BIGGER HOUSES because this song represents exactly where we are in our lives right now. Happiness is all about being surrounded by people you love, and we're learning that more and more everyday. We're grateful for each other, grateful for our families, and grateful for all of you who are the reason we get to wake up and make music for a living.”
Three songs were produced by Scott Hendricks and Dan Smyers.
