If there is one thing 3x GRAMMY-winning duo Dan + Shay are always gonna be…it’s open and honest with their fans and community. The celebrated singer/songwriters did just that with their recent short film The Drive, a revelatory look into their private life and what they faced behind closed doors. The duo continues to shed light on their struggles and triumphs with the inspiration behind their new track “Always Gonna Be,” out now. Listen HERE.
Written by both Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney alongside frequent collaborators Ashley Gorley, Jordan Minton and Jordan Reynolds, the song is the fourth offering off the forthcoming, highly anticipated fifth studio album, Bigger Houses, co-produced by Smyers and veteran music producer Scott Hendricks set to release worldwide on September 15 via Warner Music Nashville.
To celebrate the upcoming release of Bigger Houses, Dan + Shay are giving fans the opportunity to pre-order special edition, coloured, vinyl versions of the album available only by visiting the duo’s website.
“In March of 2022, we met to discuss the future of the band,” said the duo. “One of the most important things we talked about that night was our responsibility to our fans who had been with us through every high and low of the past 10 years. Whether we decided to call it quits, or dive headfirst into a new chapter, we felt that we owed it to our fans to make peace with the idea of Dan + Shay in our hearts. No matter the outcome, the music we created together would live on forever, and we wanted to be able to celebrate that rather than looking back in vain.”
