Dunkin' Donuts Presents "Summer Chill," The Debut Album From Rob Gronkowski And David Ortiz

New England legends sing to celebrate summer and their love of Dunkin' Donuts' Iced Coffee

CANTON, Mass., June 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Gronk. Big Papi. Together. Singing? Yes. Dunkin' Donuts today presented "Summer Chill," the debut musical collaboration between two of New England's most famous athletes, David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox and Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots. These two legends of sport have stepped in front of the microphones and the cameras for the first time to actually sing for an album of songs celebrating their mutual love of Dunkin' Donuts' legendary Iced Coffee. Beginning today, fans can visit to hear the first single, "Sippin'," as well as view the accompanying music video. "Sippin'" will be available for download beginning June 11. Three additional songs and videos will drop throughout the summer.

"Summer Chill" features a fun and eclectic mix of original songs performed by Gronkowski and Ortiz, showcasing their unique musical stylings inspired by summer and Dunkin' Donuts' Iced Coffee. At, fans can download and share Gronk and Big Papi's songs, videos, gifs, memes, behind-the-scenes footage and more.

According to Patty Healy, Field Marketing Director, New England Region at Dunkin' Brands, "Dunkin' Donuts has recently continued its partnerships with both David Ortiz and Rob Gronkowski, and together we wanted to celebrate by creating something truly original and memorable for our fans. This momentous musical pairing between these beloved sports stars tunes in on two things we know New Englanders are exceptionally passionate about: summer and Dunkin' Donuts' Iced Coffee. We hope people will have as much fun enjoying the songs and videos as Gronk and Big Papi had making them."

"I'm really excited to work with Dunkin' Donuts again and team with Big Papi to showcase our singing and dancing skills in our first-ever album," said Rob Gronkowski. "I've caught touchdowns in front of 80,000 fans in a stadium, but I don't often sing in front of anyone, so this was definitely a new and fun experience. Thank goodness Papi has some serious singing talent!"

"It's been a lot of fun working with Dunkin' Donuts over the past few years and I'm excited to continue my partnership with the brand," said David Ortiz, Red Sox all-star. "When Dunkin' Donuts came up with the idea about making an album, I figured someone must have been listening to me singing in the clubhouse.  Then they told me it was with my boy Gronk and the first thing I wondered was how I could try to match his legendary dance moves. Here is to hoping Summer Chill can help kick off a great summer for all New Englanders."

Earlier this year, Dunkin' Donuts signed a two-year agreement with Gronkowski and will continue their partnership with Ortiz through the end of the baseball season. The partnerships include advertising, social media and appearances on behalf of the brand.

According to The NPD Group / CREST®, Dunkin' Donuts serves the most traditional hot and iced coffee in America.  The brand sells more than 1.8 billion cups of hot and iced coffee globally every year. The brand has been at the forefront in developing an innovative process for brewing Iced Coffee, which has set the standard for the industry. The unique process, called double brewing, uses twice the amount of coffee when making the beverage so that it's never watered down, which achieves consistent flavor and freshness that are never compromised at the expense of serving it cold.
