Dreamer Boy will release his new album, Lonestar, on May 10 via slowplay/Capitol Records.

The album is a complex balance of duality: pure associations with Southern culture and the textures of Americana are woven with the creation of a larger-than-life persona—the beaten-down Rodeo Clown depicted on the album’s cover.

At its heart, the album is about finding yourself. “You start off running away,” says Dreamer Boy, who was born Zach Taylor. “You’re literally like, ‘Get me out of my parents’ house, get me out into the world.’ But then you start to run back to some of those things.”

These themes coalesce in Dreamer Boy’s new single, “If You’re Not In Love,” which he wrote with Nick Velez and bandmates Aidan Spiro, Christian Taylor, Henry Solomon, and Aaron Wing. The song was produced by Spiro, Taylor, and Solomon. Dreamer Boy takes to the streets of Hollywood in the accompanying black and white, one-shot visualizer.

After his sweetly psychedelic debut album, Love, Nostalgia, 2021’s heartfelt follow-up, All the Ways We Are Together, and tours with Clairo, Omar Apollo, The Marías, Still Woozy, and others, Dreamer Boy firmly steps out of the bedroom and on to the highways on Lonestar.

Moving from Nashville to Los Angeles, he found his new direction as he watched the miles pass. Driving through his childhood home of Texas and visiting his grandfather’s farm three times in a year instilled a sense of connectivity to the South he’d lost touch with.

“I felt myself needing to hold that as a fixture in my heart as I was going out West again,” he says. “I felt the need to attach to my spirit the tone and feeling of those places.”

Dreamer Boy also recently announced that he and his band will kick off the Summer in America tour in Phoenix on May 28 at Valley Bar. The headlining run, which will include shows at Nashville’s Exit/In (June 4) and Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn (June 11), will conclude at the historic Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA on June 27.

Pre-order Lonestar.
