Dierks Bentley’s new album title ‘Black’ is both literal and metaphorical. He says the album will be filled with dark moments, but also some sexy and quick-witted songs. And, as we’ve become accustomed to, again it will be a very personal album.
Black is his wife Cassidy’s maiden name, something he mentioned in a press release, indicating lyrics inspired by or aimed at her might be coming. “A lot of it happens after dark, in the black of night,” he said.
“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,” he says.
This will be his eighth studio album on Capitol Nashville and his first since ‘Riser’, which was released in February 2014. No release date has been announced.
Dierks will co-host the 2016 ACM Awards in Las Vegas on April 3.
