Dierks Bentley has been vaguely teasing new music on social media for about a week and today he confirmed he DOES have a new album on the way.
Dierks will release The Mountain sometime in 2018. No exact release date has been announced.
Today (January 10) he released a teaser video on YouTube with music that we can only assume is going to be the title track for the new album.
Dierks told Rolling Stone Country about the new album,
“The Mountain mixes Up on the Ridge with Black. This record covers more ground in that Up on the Ridge area than I thought it would. The most successful part of my career is in large part due to Ross Copperman, and these sounds and ideas that he has. But we’ve reached a place where we’ve pushed that as far as we can, so how do we grab some of the stuff I love from the first part of my career and blow that up even more, and put it all together in a cauldron.”
In a Facebook Live video Dierks dives deeper into writing the new album. Watch the full Facebook Live video below for all the details.
