Brooks lays down new song

Thursday, October 13, 2016 – 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.

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. ...
