Currently headlining sold out shows in North America, multi-platinum selling artist Dean Lewis announces his highly anticipated debut album A Place We Knew, to be released world-wide on Friday, March 22nd, 2019. A Place We Knew includes global hits ‘Be Alright’, ‘Waves’ and brand new single ‘7 Minutes’. For Lewis, the title A Place We Knew encapsulates the bittersweet memories of past relationships.
Lewis sought out several producers to collaborate with on his new album. Edd Holloway and Nick Atkinson, the British team behind ‘Waves’ and ‘Be Alright’, are ever-present and so too is Melbourne’s John Castle (‘Don’t Hold Me’ and ‘Chemicals’) and Dann Hume (‘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 onA Place We Knew.
Now with over a billion streams of his music globally and being named Billboard’s “Chart-Breaker” in October, Dean has topped local and international charts with ‘Be Alright’. Achieving GOLD certification by RIAA in the US in February, ‘Be Alright’ is still charging up the charts hitting Top 50 at Billboard, Top 20 at Top 40, Top 5 at Hot AC and headed Top 10 at AC radio. Globally the single is approaching 650 million combined streams achieving multi-platinum, platinum and gold status sales worldwide.
