Summer Dean Announces New Album, ‘The Biggest Life,’ Coming In June

Summer Dean country music

Summer Dean has new music on the way.

Her new studio album, The Biggest Life, is due out everywhere on June 16th.

The 13-song project was recorded completely analog at the Bunker in Lockhart, Texas with producer Bruce Robison.

Summer wrote all 13 songs on the album, with only one co-write, and says it’s the most real and vulnerable writing she’s ever done:

“I’m very proud of myself and this record. It’s the most real and vulnerable I’ve ever been with my writing.”

Of working with Robison, Summer says getting the stamp of approvable from a Texas legend like him has been incredibly validating as an artist:

“His credentials and record as a writer gave me the confidence I needed to make this kind of album — completely analog, unfiltered and organic.”

She most recently released her Bad Romantic record in 2021, and says she’s been able to let go of the “perfection” aspect of her work in order to dig deep and really be her authentic self:

“It made me let go of perfection. I think when any artist does that, they do their best.”

Summer is so authentic and true to her Texas roots, and it sounds like this album will be no different from that angle.

I can’t wait to hear the full project, and she already released the lead single, The Biggest Life Worth Living Is The Small, which you can watch here:
