It’s official: Zach Bryan’s new album and follow-up to his ultra-successful self-titled album, The Great American Bar Scene, will be released on Thursday, 4 July.

After months of teasers and the drop of two new singles, Purple Gas (featuring duet partner/the song’s original songwriter, Noeline Hofmann) and Pink Skies, it’s good to know that we can finally pre-order new music from Zach Bryan.

Taking to Instagram yesterday (21 June), Bryan wrote in the caption of a touching post, “A preface to the record is coming soon. Thank you guys and I am blown away daily. I am the most blessed man on the planet and from everyone that worked on this record: we love you more than words could say.”

In addition to announcing the album’s release date in the post, Bryan revealed a cool rollout plan that allows fans to hear new music early.

From 24 June, the Something In The Orange singer will visit 23 bars across the US “that embody the spirit of American culture” and play “select cuts” from his upcoming album.

The Great American Bar Scene is available to pre-order on 2LP standard black vinyl in a gatefold cover here.

Bryan recently revealed that the album would contain 16 songs and a poem, stating that his new music may be his best yet. The singer said the release has the vibes of a “depressed and hopeful summer vacation” and added that The Great American Bar Scene will be “dropped on someone's head any day now”.

New music from Bryan has been coming for a long time, with the singer revealing that he was “about half done” with the upcoming album on social media in January.

His self-titled album, released last year, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Albums Chart after moving over 200,000 units. Will The Great American Bar Scene do the same?

In December, Bryan brought his in-demand show to Melbourne, Australia, for one night only as part of the Victorian Government’s live music initiative, ALWAYS LIVE. Backstage after the show, Bryan was exclaiming, “That was my loudest ever show,” referring to the volume of the crowd singalongs.
