Bentley To Chat With Fans Through Twitter Music Today

Nashville,
TN – Jan. 11, 2016 – For PLATINUM selling singer/songwriter Dierks
Bentley, it seems the most personal songs are also the ones most
universally relatable to his fans. On his upcoming release, he raises
the bar on that idea as he candidly explores the farthest corners of his
own heart. His eighth studio album BLACK is set for release in early 2016. Fans can pre-order the collection now on Dierks.com
and have access to extra tracks, bonus videos, special merchandise and
VIP Black Card member experiences with Bentley 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.”

Parts
of the album are sexy, intimate and tender, some are quick-witted and
wild, other pieces are broken, desperate, longing. As a result, some of
the songs’ messages aren’t always flattering, but they’re inevitably
candid.

“There’s
a realness to the concept, the songs, the process and the production,”
says Bentley. “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.”

Bentley
reassembled the RISER production team, including producer Ross
Copperman and executive producer Arturo Buenahora Jr., and they
collectively embraced the challenge of advancing Bentley’s sound while
mining his past romantic successes and failures. Recording began
cautiously in February 2015, but Bentley allowed the album to simmer for
months while he pursued his SOUNDS OF SUMMER TOUR. He delved in again
in the fall, building a project that’s both revealing and simultaneously
mysterious. Fans will get their first hint at the results when Capitol
Nashville releases the lead single in the coming weeks.

Instead
of rehashing proven formulas, Bentley has doggedly reinvented his sound
on every album and subsequently developed an uncommon mix of commercial
success and critical respect. Each of his albums has developed its own
identity and/or conceptual theme, be it the classic-country texture of
MODERN DAY DRIFTER, the bluegrass/Americana bent of UP ON THE RIDGE or
the resilience at the core of his last album, 2014’s RISER. 

Today
at 6:30P CT, Bentley will host a Twitter chat with fans who can
participate by following @DierksBentley. For more information on
