– Garth Brooks released a new single today, "Baby, Let's Lay Down And Dance," during a busy recording period for the singer.
iHeart Radio had the world premiere of the upbeat song, which has a soulful, somewhat funky edge. The song will be the first single of his upcoming record, which will be out later this year on his own label, Pearl.
Brooks wrote the song with Kent Blazy, Victoria Shaw, the late Kim Williams and and Steve Dorff.
Brooks will release the title of the new release this Saturday during the SEC Game of the Week on CBS. A song from the release, "Pure Adrenaline," has been used during game coverage. The album cover will be unveiled Oct. 17. The disc will be out later this year.
Brooks also will have a holiday CD, ""Christmas Together" with his wife Trisha Yearwood on Nov. 11, also on Pearl. That release will feature duets along with songs by both singers. James Taylor will lend his vocal chops as well.
A box set, "Garth Brooks: The Ultimate Collection" will be out on Nov. 11. The set, which is being released only by Target will include 10 discs, including previously unreleased songs.
Brooks released "Man Against Machine" in November 2014.
