Music News - Dean Lewis announces debut album + NZ show for this May

Dean Lewis announces debut album + NZ show for this May

21 February 2019 - 0 Comments

Currently headlining sold out shows in North America, multi-platinum selling artist Dean Lewis today announces his highly anticipated debut album A Place We Knew will be released world-wide on Friday March 22nd.

The global singer-songwriter is coming to New Zealand for his first ever headline show where fans will get the chance to hear his new music from the hotly-anticipated debut album, A Place We Knew. Dean will play one show at Auckland’s Town Hall on May 3rd, 2019.

Still on a high from his song Be Alright being voted #6 on Triple J’s hottest 100, Dean’s current single 7 Minutes is now certified GOLD in Australia. Written in London in an Uber following a disagreement with a girl, 7 Minutes launched its way to the top spot of #1 on TMN Hottest 100 Airplay Chart for 2 consecutive weeks and has accumulated over 25 million streams in just over 4 weeks. 7 Minutes along with his global hits 6 x Platinum Be Alright and 5 x Platinum Waves will be included on Dean’s debut album.

For Lewis, the title A Place We Knew encapsulates the bittersweet memories of past relationships. “All the songs were written through relationships I’d been in and houses I used to live in and hotel rooms.”

On a plane he heard a phrase that struck him like a bolt of lightning, “An in-flight-radio DJ said, ‘I wish that was a place we’d known about’ I went to my notes and wrote A Place We Knew and was like, that’s the album title. That ties everything together.”

Lewis sought out several producers to collaborate with on his new album. The British team behind Waves and Be Alright, Edd Holloway and Nick Atkinson are ever-present and so too is Melbourne’s John Castle (Don’t Hold Me and Chemicals) and Dann Hume (Evermore) (Time to Go and title-track A Place We Knew). Sydney-based producer Dylan Nash, whom Lewis refers to as “almost like the co-producer for the whole album”, ties a thread between the 12 songs that were written and recorded all over the world giving A Place We Knew its cohesive sound.

From the uplifting Hold Of Me and the celebratory Stay Awake, to his rawest and most vulnerable tracks Don’t Hold Me and Half A Man, Dean’s debut album demonstrates a far greater breadth and depth to his songwriting than ever heard before. In addition to writing every song on the album, Dean triumphantly plays piano, acoustic and electric guitar on A Place We Knew.

With over a billion streams of his music globally and being named Billboard’s “Chart-Breaker” in October, Dean has been dominating charts all over the world with his single Be Alright. In Australia, Be Alright was the second highest selling single from an Australian artist in 2018 and the fourth highest selling single of the year overall. Globally the single has now reached over 630 million streams achieving multi-platinum, platinum and gold status sales worldwide.

Dean Lewis is currently playing his first North American headline tour with shows sold out from Los Angeles to New York City. He will return to New Zealand in May for his A Place We Knew National Tour.
