BlackDierks Bentley has announced the details for his upcoming eighth studio album, Black. The follow-up to his acclaimed Riser is slated to drop in 2016.
The new album reunites the core creative team from Riser, including producer Ross Copperman and executive producer Arturo Buenahora, Jr. Riser set a new high-water mark for Bentley, earning him Grammy, CMA and ACM nominations and putting him in the headlining slot in arenas across the country. Black sees Bentley continuing to push himself creatively, expanding his sonic palette to include influences that "flourish on the edge of arena rock," according to a press release.
Black is a very personal album, taking its title from Bentley's wife Cassidy's maiden name, but it's intended to tell a universal story of "breakups, hookups, mess-ups and everything in between, shining a light on the things that happen after the sun goes down."
"It's a relationship album that covers the ups and downs of the journey and ends with some self-realization and evolvement," Bentley states. "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."
Black features more input from the female perspective than any previous Bentley album, including appearances from Maren Morris, Elle King, Natalie Hemby, Hillary Lindsey and Jessi Alexander.
"Having a female perspective on this record really made the album more than just music," Bentley says. "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."
The album also features a guest shot from Trombone Shorty. Black is set for release on Capitol Records Nashville.

The Mountain (Pre-Order)Release Date: June 8, 2018*
Dierks Bentley will release his highly anticipated ninth studio album, THE MOUNTAIN via Capitol Records Nashville. Reaching a new creative high, Bentley co-wrote 10 of the 13 new tracks that are unified by themes of presence and positivity, and range in style from textured rock to acoustic folk, feeling both rooted and expansive at the same time.
THE MOUNTAIN's story begins in the Rocky Mountain resort town of Telluride, Colorado, which every summer plays host to a celebrated bluegrass festival. Owing to his well-documented love of the genre, Bentley has attended the festival multiple times over the years, always making a point to slow down and tune back into the world around him. But after performing on the festival's main stage in 2017, the idyllic surroundings became more than a much-needed getaway.
"I found myself there, constantly reaching for my guitar," Bentley said. "It was like a gravitational pull. That town and those people just make you want to be creative, I couldn't describe it. I was like 'How do I tell everyone in Nashville this is what I want to write about?' I realized I couldn't bring it back, so I had to take everyone out there."
Returning that August with six of his most trusted songwriting collaborators, Bentley and his fellow 'Telluwriters' all bunked up in a small house, explored the area and dug deep into the peaceful, reflective vibes he was feeling. They had five days to work with and were hoping to write eight songs but ended up with nearly twice that number, forming the core of the record. Bentley returned to Telluride with his production team Ross Copperman, Jon Randall Stewart and Arturo Buenahora Jr to a tucked-away hideout called Studio in the Clouds last November to record. Perched high on a mesa, its tracking room overlooking the endless Rocky Mountain landscape, THE MOUNTAIN rose up in earnest.
"For me it's the best of both worlds, and it feels like something new. It's powerful but also happy, with acoustic sensibility mixed in with the big sounds I like to have for the road," Bentley added. "They are the songs I'd play for somebody to say, 'This is who I am right now.'"

Un-United KingdomThe latest 4-song ep from PITCHSHIFTER! The title track Un-united Kingdom pokes fun at the good old United Kingdom, set to a backdrop of spastic break-beats and aggressive guitars and scathing vocals. In fact, its such a catchy tune that it appears twice on the ep ? once in its original form and again as a remix by Fuzz Townshend (Pop Will Eat Itself, Bentley Rythmn Ace).
Pitchshifter (from Nottingham, U.K.) began in the early '90s industrial underground as aggressive social commentators, hearkening back to the early days of British punk and American hardcore (a la the Minutemen and Dead Kennedys). The band signed to Earache in 1992, and their first two releases (the mini-album Submit (1992) and the full-length Desensitized (1993) ) established them as mainstays in the scene. In 1996 they released their Infotainment ep, also on Earache. These albums simultaneously found their way across the Atlantic, capturing the attention of American listeners.
In 1996, Pitchshifter morphed away from their industrial roots, showing a growing interest in technology and computers. Yet the stronger integration of electronics comes without sacrificing either their signature aggressive sound or an upfront political message.
The UnUnited Kingdom ep sees the band still broadening their musical horizons. These tracks (including a Big Black cover) will appeal to fans of crossover break-beat/metal/techno/hardcore.1. Un-United Kingdom

Never Give InNever Give In is the ninth studio album from Will Hoge.
"I'm so excited about this new album. I can't wait to get out on the road and play these new songs for folks," shares Will Hoge. "There's gonna be a lot of different things happening live on this tour and I'm thrilled for everyone to get to see it. Couple all these incredible cities with such great support acts as Red Wanting Blue and Sunny Sweeney, it is going to be one fun tour!"
NEVER GIVE IN is a life motto for the Nashville native who catapulted into the national spotlight in 2012. Spending the early part of the year supporting Dierks Bentley's arena headlining tour, Hoge was introduced to his first dose of mainstream country. The release of the Eli Young Band Platinum smash "Even If It Breaks Your Heart," which he co-wrote with Eric Paslay, garnered an enormous amount of buzz at Country radio, earning Hoge nominations for the 2013 GRAMMY Country Song of the Year, 2013 ACM Song of the Year and 2012 CMA Song of the Year. While raising Hoge's profile as a hit songwriter, the song also introduced his music and records to the Country music audience; a decade removed from major label release on Atlantic Records, CAROUSEL. Currently, his song "Strong" is featured as the musical backdrop for General Motor's 2014 Chevy Silverado nationwide ad campaign.1. Different Man

When Was The Last TimeOn the heels of his eighth No. 1 Country single Darius Rucker has responded to fans' appeals for new music with an announcement letting them know they won't be waiting much longer for a new album from the 3-time GRAMMY winning star. When Was The Last Time, the long-awaited fifth studio country album on Capitol Records Nashville, has been set for release.
Earlier this week, Rucker spoke with Billboard about teaming up with esteemed Nashville producer Ross Copperman (Dierks Bentley, Brett Eldredge, Keith Urban) to bring his vision for the album to life.
"On top of being a genius with the equipment, Ross is so high-energy and funny; that kid is never not laughing." He added, "Every time we were in the studio we had a great band who had great ideas of their own, so it was the farthest thing from tedious, but just, let's get in and do it. I think for the whole record we spent just three days tracking music."
The album's release will be yet another signature moment in the multi-platinum career of one of music's most beloved figures.1. For The First Time

A Journey Too Far
180 Gram Vinyl Includes 12" + 7"
"A Journey Too Far" sees Nostalgia 77 - the London based producer, guitarist, songwriter and bandleader further developing his
creative partnership with German singer Josa Peit.
Nostalgia 77 main man Benedic Lamdin is hugely in demand as a producer and engineer, with work for a diverse array of artists as well as his own studio
albums and side-projects (the most recent of which, Nostalgia 77 and the Monster, led to heavy BBC 6Music play and a live session for Cerys Matthews).
His latest A-list assignment has been with Jamie Cullum, a relationship that has evolved from the latter's admiration and support for Nostalgia 77 on his
BBC Radio 2 show.
Lead single"An Angel With No Halo" finds Lamdin melding inspirations from the English folk and psychedelic scene to the '60s orchestral pop of
Gainsbourg and Axelrod. Building on the strides he made as a songwriter on his 2011 album 'The Sleepwalking Society', this single blends a poetic,
highly visual lyricism with his much lauded skills and instincts as a composer.
Nostalgia 77's last studio album introduced him to a wider audience than ever, by dint of refreshing blues, folk and psychedelic influences and the
decision to complete his band with the charismatic Josa Peit - the perfect interpreter of his songs - where he had previously featured various guests.
Media support abounded, with radio play including Jason Bentley, Jeremy Sole, Garth Trinidad, Gilles Peterson, The Selector, Gideon Coe, and Don
Letts; national radio playlisting in the US, France and elsewhere, and major features including The Telegraph and Wax Poetics.
Aside from her work with the Nostalgia 77 band, Josa Peit is a rising star of the German music scene, with increasing international recognition. She has
recently been collaborating with renowned German beatmaker Dexter, and has also just seen the release of her first self-produced track Waste on the
"Muscle Tuff compilation from hot Berlin techno/house collective Brandt Brauer Frick's The Gym label; with more solo outings in the pipeline.1. What Do You Know

Traveller (Awaiting Repress)Chris Stapleton's highly anticipated solo debut album, Traveller, will be released on Mercury Records Nashville. As a special preview, a behind-the-scenes album trailer can now be viewed here.
Already a world-renowned songwriter, Stapleton has enjoyed five #1 hits including the five-week No. 1 "Never Wanted Nothing More" recorded by Kenny Chesney, George Strait's "Love's Gonna Make it Alright" and Luke Bryan's "Drink A Beer," which Stapleton recently performed with Lady Antebellum at the recent CMT "Artists of the Year" show (watch the performance here).
Recorded at Nashville's historic RCA Studio A (with additional production at The Castle and Blackbird Studio), Traveller was produced by Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell) and recorded by Vance Powell (Jack White). In addition to renditions of Dean Dillon and Linda Hargrove's "Tennessee Whiskey" and Don Sampson's "Was It 26," the album features twelve original songs, including fan-favorite "Sometimes I Cry." Last night, during a special album reveal party, Stapleton returned to RCA Studio A to record a new version of "Sometimes I Cry" live-to-tape in front of an audience-allowing a unique, once-in-a-lifetime glimpse inside the making of the album. The track is currently being mastered and will be added to the final track-listing very shortly.
Of his inspiration behind the record, Stapleton comments, "This record was made standing on the shoulders of friends, family, and heroes. I hope people enjoy listening to it as much as I've enjoyed making it."
Over the course of his acclaimed career, Stapleton has penned over 170 album cuts, including songs recorded by Adele, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley and Dierks Bentley, and has such notable co-writers as Vince Gill, Peter Frampton and Sheryl Crow among others. Additionally, Stapleton has shared the stage with such respected artists as Gill, Alison Krauss, Marty Stuart, Emmylou Harris and more. As lead vocalist for critically acclaimed bluegrass band The SteelDrivers, Stapleton earned three Grammy nominations including "Best Bluegrass Album," as well as an International Bluegrass Music Association Award for"Emerging Artist of the Year." He's also won eight ASCAP Awards and has contributed to the soundtracks of several feature films including "Cars 2" and "Valentine's Day."1. Traveller

Door Without A Screen (Out of Stock)Front porch melodies and song lyrics grown out of the rocky topsoil of Eastern Kentucky's Appalachian Mountains intertwine Sundy Best's roots in every song they sing. They are storytellers and balladeers. They are crowd rockers and party starters. The band's visceral sound and incredible live shows have gained them a loyal following of dedicated fans from the hills and hollers of Appalachia, all the way to the bustling one way streets under downtown city lights across the south.
There are mountains in their music- valleys of love lost and missing home, peaks of rowdy Saturday nights chasing Kentucky women, and the journey in between. With influences ranging from country, bluegrass, rock, soul, and rhythm and blues, the duo produces music that, at times, is hard to classify. That's just fine by Kris Bentley and Nick Jamerson. No need for a radio template, just the strum of guitar strings, bass and snare, life lyrics, and the family, friends, and fans that make it all worth it. Every song is a reminder that they have not forgotten where they came from.1. Kentucky Women

Beginning Of Things (Out Of Stock)Beginning of Things, the new full-length album from acclaimed musician, songwriter, and performer Charlie Worsham, will be released via Warner Bros. Records / Warner Music Nashville.
Co-produced by Frank Liddell (Miranda Lambert, Lee Ann Womack, Aubrie Sellers) and Eric Masse (Rayland Baxter, Mikky Ekko) with Arturo Buenahora, Jr. (Eric Church, Dierks Bentley) serving as the Executive Producer, Beginning of Things includes 13 new songs, 9 of which Worsham co-wrote.
Of the album, Worsham comments, "We had so much fun! I had fallen out of love with music, and making this record put me back in love with it on a level I hadn't felt since I was a teenager. Beginning Of Things was a challenge in surrendering control and trusting my own talent. I'm confident that these songs and these recordings capture my musical geography and personal truth, and at the end of the day, I'm convinced that is the ultimate purpose of an artist-to speak one's truth."
Born and raised in Mississippi, Worsham attended Grenada High School and went on to study at Boston's prestigious Berklee College of Music. In addition to his life as a working musician, Worsham is actively involved in music education and, last year founded the Follow Your Heart Scholarship Fund in partnership with The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. The fund supports the youth of Grenada, Mississippi-his hometown-who possess an uncommon talent and desire to achieve great things in the arts. In its first year, the organization has raised nearly $50,000. More information can be found at www.FollowYourHeartArts.org.
Beginning of Things is Worsham's second full-length album and follows 2013's Rubberband, which received widespread acclaim. American Songwriter calls Worsham, "the sort of triple threat artist that seems in short supply on Music Row these days. He writes well, sings well, and is a skilled and tasteful guitarist to boot," while Rolling Stone asserts, "A fleet-fingered guitarist and empathetic vocalist, his talent is reminiscent of a young Keith Urban in all the best ways."1.
