Dierks Bentley just made our Monday by announcing he’s releasing a brand new album set for release in early 2016 called “Black!” While there is no official release date yet, you can pre-order the album now at Dierks.com and get a special “Black Card,” which grants you exclusive access to songs, merch and other surprises. You’ll also be entered in a contest to go to and meet Dierks on opening night of his 2016 tour AND win two tickets to EVERY SHOW on the tour. (Dierks totally understands fangirls, this is the best contest ever…who wouldn’t want to follow Dierks around all Summer?!?)
As Dierks told Entertainment Weekly, the new album is inspired by Dierks’ decade long marriage with his wife Caroline, whose maiden name is Black. The album explores the deepest corners of what it’s like to be in such a a strong relationship. The heartfelt album is rumored to have a big rock sound to it, which is something country fans are no stranger to, and neither is Dierks. He’s not afraid to change up his sound saying “If I was making a record to just to make a record… I would quit.”
Pre-sales for the album are available now on Dierks’ official website. Join Dierks’ fanclub, The Congress to get exclusive first access to pre sale tickets and other cool prizes! Stay tuned for an announcement of Dierk’s 2016 tour dates!
