Dierks Bentley to release eighth studio album BLACK on May 27

Grammy nominated, Multi-PLATINUM selling singer-songwriter Dierks Bentley will release his eighth studio album BLACK on May 27. BLACK follows the amazing success of Bentley’s RISER which earned him critical acclaim, commercial success and an armful of Grammy, CMA and ACM nominations.
BLACK is incredibly personal, it’s named after Dierks’ wife Cassidy’s maiden name, but it looks at the highs and lows that we all experience in relationships.
“It’s a relationship album that covers the ups and downs of the journey and ends with some self-realisation and evolvement,” shared Bentley. “The song Black helps set all of that in motion at the top of the album by guiding you into the darkness and the shadows of the night. The same guy who sings Somewhere On A Beach winds up growing and having enough perspective to sing something introspective like Different For Girls. By the last song, he’s taking a look back on love and life.”
The album was produced by Ross Copperman and executive producer Arturo Buenahora Jr. Bentley also shared the vocals with vocalists Maren Morris, Elle King, Natalie Hemby, Hillary Lindsey and Jessi Alexander. Never before has a Bentley album contained so much input from the opposite sex.
“Having a female perspective on this record really made the album more than just music,” added Bentley. “It makes it a conversation between a guy and a girl. Sometimes it’s harmonious and sometimes it’s two people clashing, but it’s always there.”
