Oh say, can you see? Fair-weathered anti-Ticketmaster crusader Zach Bryan has announced his fifth studio album — and he'll drink to that.

Featuring the hue-indebted previously released singles "Pink Skies" and "Purple Gas," The Great American Bar Scene will be released on July 4 (obviously) through Warner Records. It follows Bryan's eponymous 2023 record and is now available for pre-order.

While no tracklist details have been provided, Bryan has previously teased collaborations with Noah Kahan, whom he recruited to feature on a version of "Sarah's Place" last year, and Bon Iver. The Great American Bar Scene is said to consist of 18 tracks: 17 songs and one poem.

"A preface to the record is coming soon," the singer-songwriter wrote on Instagram. "Thank you guys and I am blown away daily. I am the most blessed man on the planet and from everyone [who] worked on this record: we love you more than words could say."

Fans can be among the first to hear some of Bryan's new songs at 20 of his favourite bars in the US — and one in Toronto, Charlotte's Room on King West — starting June 24. See the full list of select watering holes below.
