Garth Brooks is delaying the followup to his 2015 album, Man Against Machine. The superstar originally said another album would be released in 2015 or 2016, but in a Facebook post to fans yesterday (Thursday, March 10th), Garth has changed his mind.
He wrote, “When it comes to the new music, the one thing I keep hearing over and over is, ‘Where is the Garth stuff?’ I made the statement that when we came back on the road and into the studio, I was not confident in my own writing . . . it is a muscle, and if you don’t use it, you just can’t turn it back on again . . . it takes time . . . but I DID hear you. And because of that, teamed with the touring schedule, I am asking a huge favor from you: I am postponing the release of the new studio record . . . I ask for your patience as I explore the writing again. I have been at it for over four months now, enjoying the challenge and enjoying the studio more because of it. This new album will be the most Garth thing I have ever done . . . whether that is a good thing or a bad thing, you will decide.”
At this point, Garth is working toward a summer release.
He also continues on his World Tour with Trisha Yearwood, which rolls on to Raleigh, NC this weekend with shows tonight (Friday, March 11th), Saturday (March 12th) and Sunday (March 13th).
