DIERKS BENTLEY announced that his next album will be called "The Mountain", and it'll be out sometime this year. He tells NPR that he recorded most of it in Telluride, Colorado. Obviously, that influenced the title.
They were curious about his plans going into the studio. Did he already have songs written? Did he have a sound or theme in mind? The answer is no. Always no.
Quote, "These records, one thing that's consistent is that I go in with no expectations. There's nothing calculated or planned. There [are] no meetings about what the next record needs to be.
He said the one goal he always has is to make sure each album sounds different, so it can stand on its own. There's no release date for "The Mountain", but his tour starts in May, so you know it'll be out by then.
