It's going to be a big summer for Dermot Kennedy.
The singer on Wednesday dropped a breathtaking new song called "Dreamer," alongside a stirring set of visuals. Even further, the Irish artist has confirmed the forthcoming release of his sophomore album, titled Sonder, which will arrive Sept. 23 via Island Records/Interscope.
“The meaning behind Sonder has resonated with me so much for years," says Kennedy. "I exist in an industry where we’re encouraged to constantly only think about ourselves and I find that exhausting and uninspiring. I want to learn about you. Let us share all of our triumphs, all of our troubles. Let this music belong to all of us, to find our own stories and our own solace within it.”
The news and the new music comes at a big moment for Kennedy, who is hitting the road this week in support of Shawn Mendes on his North American tour, in addition to a number of his own headlining and festival dates throughout the summer.
