During a press conference today in Atlanta, Garth Brooks confirmed that his highly-anticipated new album will be available on November 11th, though the album title is still a well-kept secret. The album includes his current hit, “People Loving People” and will be released via his own Pearl Records in a new partnership with RCA Nashville.
Recently, the country icon announced his music will be released via GhostTunes, a new online sharing service he co-created. Brooks, one of only a handful of artists who does not sell his music via iTunes, started the new venture as a means of letting artists and labels decide whether to sell music as singles or, as he prefers, as albums. In addition to music by everyone from Miranda Lambert and Brad Paisley to G-Unit and Disclosure on GhostTunes, a Garth Brooks “Digital Bundle” includes eight of his studio albums, a double live CD/DVD with 30 songs and videos, and his upcoming album at the mere price tag of $29.99.
Since early this month, Brooks has been on tour with wife of nine years, fellow country superstar Trisha Yearwood. Brooks has been unveiling each destination he plans to visit one city at a time. This weekend, the pair will be performing in Atlanta before moving to Lexington, Kentucky and Jacksonville, Florida later in October.
