Dan + Shay is back after taking some time away to regroup. They are set to be the first duo to be coaches on NBC’s The Voice when Season 25 of the show premieres in the Spring of 2024. The new season will also include Reba McEntire in a coach’s chair.
They also recently announced their forthcoming fifth studio album, Bigger Houses, co-produced by Dan Smyers and set to release worldwide on September 15 via Warner Music Nashville.
Dan Smyers said of the duo’s fifth album, “Some of our records have been more pop- or hip-hop/R&B-infused, but on this record, I wanted to make tracks that we could hop up at any bar anywhere with our live band and play the songs as they were recorded.”
He added, “Ultimately, this music, this whole album, is something that I’ll be able to look back on in a decade or two and be really proud of the way it turned out.” This comes shortly after the revelation that the successful duo almost broke up. But it seems they are pretty happy lately: at a recent show, they both took their shirts off, showing off the results of their fitness routines.
