Big Bus Dream Releases New Single ‘American’ Ahead of Album of the Same Name

Indie rock artist Big Bus Dream, founded by Mike Shannon, is set to release his latest album, ‘American’, on June 27th this year. To celebrate, Big Bus Dream has shared the album's lead single and title track, unleashing a wave of positive attention, raw emotion, and powerful lyrics.

The song, a captivating blend of melodies and inspirational lyrics, explores the polarising attitudes within the United States, and asks what has happened to the idea of being "Just American." Throughout the single, Shannon's powerful vocals directly address the listener, questioning why we allow ourselves to be easily controlled and categorised.

Fusing contemporary sounds with classic inspiration, Big Bus Dream's new single is a timeless track that's sure to resonate. With heartfelt lyrics and intricate instrumentals, the song reveals the artist's growth and passion for crafting music that defies genre.

‘American’ is the culmination of a prolific period for the band, during which Shannon completed a recording project of 45 songs. The first collection, ‘C'mon Dream’, was released in 2023 to critical acclaim, and the second, ‘Hello’, was released earlier this year in February.

Big Bus Dream, known for his emotional protest tracks that take the listener on a journey of redemption, has continued to evolve since its founding in 2006. The project blends genres, including indie, alternative, and rock, with an expert hand, creating a unique and captivating sound.

Fans can find ‘American’ on Big Bus Dream's official site and all major streaming platforms and can expect the full album to drop on June 27th this year. For more from Big Bus Dream, and to stay up to date with all his latest releases, be sure to check out their links below.
