RHETT MILLER SET TO RELEASE THE DREAMER JUNE 5;
NORTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED

Rhett Miller
Rhett Miller has announced the release of his new album, The Dreamer, on June 5. The Dreamer was produced by Miller himself and will be released 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 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. The first single from the record, "Out of Love," is now available for download below.

Says Milller, "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. The Dreamer is all about simple American songs and instrumentation. It was a blast to make."

Rhett Miller will appear at SXSW this week, followed by a North American tour featuring both solo acoustic shows and shows with his band, Rhett Miller & The Serial Lady Killers.
