Dierks Bentley plans to dive deeper into his own heart with new project.

Platinum selling entertainer Dierks Bentley plans to get even more personal and candid with his eighth studio album dubbed Black. These delightfully intimate songs are sure to connect with his faithful fans, who can expect the new album to drop in early 2016. Fans can pre-order the collection HERE and enjoy access to bonus tracks, exclusive videos, special merchandise, and exciting VIP Black Card member experiences with the singer-songwriter on his 2016 tour.

“It’s a relationship album. And to do it right, I had to dig deep as a writer, dig into the Nashville songwriting community, and record songs that explore the shadows and edges of the heart. The songs on BLACK range from the lonesomeness of an impossible relationship to ones that describe the feeling of finding that person that makes you forget the one that broke your heart,” clarifies Bentley.

Songs selected for the album range from smoldering to rebellious to bittersweet.

“There’s a realness to the concept, the songs, the process and the production,” states the Arizona native. “And the title…BLACK is mysterious and sexy and has an edge that describes the sounds we were going for. A lot of it happens after dark, in the black of night. It’s personal too…Black is my wife’s maiden name.”

For this album, Bentley tapped the 2014 Riser album production team, including producer Ross Copperman and executive producer Arturo Buenahora Jr. Recording began last February and country music fans will get their first hint at the results when Capitol Nashville releases the lead single in the next few weeks.

We can’t wait to hear the results of Bentley’s new artistic direction.
