In announcing The Epilogue, Lewis said, “Reaching this level in my career is beyond anything I ever imagined. It’s been my dream all along to perform at venues like these. It’s hard to believe that I started out playing to 100 people in tiny venues, and now I’m headlining places like Rod Laver Arena, Wembley, Ziggo Dome, and the Royal Arena. This truly feels like a dream come true. I can’t wait for my fans around the world to experience my biggest and best shows yet.”

Following unprecedented worldwide success, critical acclaim, and sold-out tours, including Wembley Arena in London and Ziggo Dome in the Netherlands, Dean has just returned to Australia and continues to write and perform with unmatched vulnerability, vibrancy, and vitality.

As such, The Epilogue represents both the culmination of an incredible journey thus far and a harbinger for where he may go next.

In between a packed live schedule, Dean penned music for The Epilogue during sessions in a Hollywood Hills house and in Hawaii. Harnessing a renewed state of inspiration, the troubadour tapped into the spirit of his earliest material from a fresh perspective honed by six more years of experience.

“My first album had a level of rawness,” Lewis observes. “For the second, I was a little more cautious and pop-oriented, but the songs were meaningful to me. On this record, I started to get rawer and more acoustic again. I was trying to rekindle the simplicity of why things worked. I knew what I wanted to hear, so I embraced what made the first one special.”

Available to pre-order and pre-save today, the 12-track The Epilogue LP includes previous singles Trust Me Mate and Memories as well as the recently released single All I Ever Wanted. The heartbreaking All I Ever Wanted was written and recorded in Los Angeles and co-produced by Dean and acclaimed duo Afterhrs (Maroon 5, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson).

Since his emergence in 2017, Dean Lewis has gathered over 13 billion streams and dozens of multiplatinum, platinum, and gold certifications worldwide. Dean’s 2019 ARIA Platinum-certified debut, A Place We Knew, housed the hits Waves and Be Alright—which also reached rarified air as a member of the Spotify “Billions Club.” He has picked up 3 ARIA Awards and 7 APRA Awards. Moreover, he has amassed a cumulative social media following of nearly 7 million fans. Not to mention, he has collaborated with everyone from Kygo, Martin Garrix, and Tiësto to Ruth B. and Julia Michaels. On the road, he’s enraptured audiences at packed headline shows in addition to touring with AJR and James Arthur. Speaking to his impact, he regularly averages north of 17 million monthly listeners on Spotify and has consistently soared as one of the Top 5 Most Viewed AU Artists on TikTok.

During 2022, Lewis unveiled his sophomore effort The Hardest Love to critical acclaim. EUPHORIA. hailed it as “an emotionally rich record,” and Atwood Magazine raved, “His gut-wrenching and powerful storytelling has captivated hearts, and now he’s coming back with a bang.”

“I’ve learned a lot of lessons, and I know myself more, but I’ve retained the wonder and possibility of life,” Dean shares. “When I wrote my debut, A Place We Knew, I had nothing, and I was living with my grandma. I’m in a much different place, yet I have the same youthful excitement. I’m calmer and more relaxed. I never lost the drive to make great music. This is my craft, my life, and my purpose. Before, I often felt like I didn’t belong, but I’m surer of my place in the world today.”
