– 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.
