rhett miller the dreamer maximum sunshine recordsRhett Miller has announced the release of his new self-produced album, The Dreamer, out June 5 on his very own Maximum Sunshine Records, distributed by The Orchard. The album features guest appearances by singers Rosanne Cash and Rachael Yamagata, as well as additional percussion by Jerry Marotta (Peter Gabriel).

The band on the record is Rhett Miller‘s touring group, the Serial Lady Killers. This is the second release on his label, the first being 2011’s The Interpreter – Live at Largo. Check out the first single from the new record, “Out of Love,” now available for download on Rhett’s website.

“I produced The Dreamer myself, a first for me, and had a very clear vision of what it should be — an intimate, rootsy record that would bridge the gap between my work with the Old 97’s and the solo albums I’ve made in the past,” says Rhett about the new release. “The Dreamer is all about simple American songs and instrumentation. It was a blast to make.”
