If you follow Dierks Bentley on social media, I'm sure you've seen clips of him walking through the trees, or climbing mountain paths, and... that's about it... No music playing (in the ones I saw) just Dierks and nature.
We knew it was a stunt, as strange and unexplained videos usually are these days, but we just weren't sure what it could be until now!
While there's no word on a release date, Dierks Bentley has announced that he's going to release The Mountain, his 9th studio album, later this year!
Dierks and his songwriting friends sequestered themselves in a home in Telluride, Colorado to write for the album. He returned to Telluride with his band to make the record.
He says, “Obviously, the songs were written and recorded in the mountains. But it's the mountain that we’re all faced with every day, and the struggle to put one foot in front of the other even when things are hard, that we all have in common. Looking back now, I think we were all searching for hope and optimism when we were writing this music.”
