Brooks announces "Fun," "Triple Live Deluxe" for Nov. 20

Monday, October 19, 2020 – Garth Brooks announced today he would release release two new albums on Nov. 20.

His 12th studio album, "Fun" and live album "Triple Live Deluxe" will be out the same date.

"Fun" includes 14 songs including "Dive Bar, his collaboration with Blake Shelton. The album also includes a cover of "Shallow" with Trisha Yearwood, "All Day Long" and "Stronger Than Me." Brooks has been teasing the disc since 2018.

"Due to fan demand in trying and difficult times," Brooks said he released seven songs from "Fun" digitally on Amazon. There will be a standard release of the album but also a limited edition with a holographic foil cover.

Last year, when asked about "Fun," Brooks said, "The title of the album was sparked because making it has been such a fun process to go through. Being able to go in and out of the studio while being on the tour, working with the same guys, it's been amazing."

Brooks will release his second live album, "Triple Live Deluxe," an enhanced release of his 2018 album "Triple Live." The album covers the 3-1/2-year Garth Brooks World Tour with Yearwood and also includes tracks from Brooks' Stadium Tour.

"Triple Live Deluxe" will be 30 tracks over 3 CDs in a slim jewel case. There will be six different album covers, and each will include a booklet with photos from the road.

CD review - Man Against Machine After releasing his debut album in 1989, Garth Brooks released music almost every year until he announced his retirement in 2000. Since then, he has released repackaged hit collections, new music on "Scarecrow" and "The Lost Sessions" and last year's cover song collection "Blame it All on My Roots." Over the years, there have been live recordings, concert and music video collections. The country songwriter became a pop culture icon, transcending genre to become ...
CD review - Blame It All On My Roots - Five Decades of Influences Garth Brooks is back with his first release of "new" material since 2001's "Scarecrow." (Truth in advertising, his "The Ultimate Hits," which actually is part of the new box set, included four new songs back in 2007). And it's quite an undertaking - four CDs of covers - Country Classics, Classic Rock, Blue-Eyed Soul and Melting Pot, an amalgam of country, rock, soul and folk; the two-CD set, "The Ultimate Set" and a DVD of his live performance in Vegas. ...
