Brooks announces name, date of new CD

Friday, October 3, 2014 – Garth Brooks announced that he would release his new album, "Man Against Machine," on Nov. 11.

"The wait is finally over," he said on his web site.

"Music has always been a reflection of where mankind is at the time," he said in a press release. "For 14 years, I have watched heart and soul, dreams and individualism, fighting for their very existence in a world of increasing technology. This album is a reminder to all those who dream, work, and fight for what they believe; do not give up your vision."

The disc shows Brooks wearing a cowboy hat and dark sunglasses with his arms folded and some type of machine in the background.

The disc, his first in more than 13 years ("Scarecrow" in 2001), includes Brooks' first single, "People Loving People." Sony Nashville will release the music.

"It is a remarkable feeling to be making music again," Brooks said, "I guess I really didn't realize how much I missed it!"

The launch will also mark the first time Brooks' music has been available to buy digitally. The fall release will also be available on physical CD. "There'll be a bunch of music," Brooks said. "We've been gone a long time, so there is a lot to sing about."

Brooks currently on a world tour, which started in early September in Chicago.

The high points for Brooks are the three most traditional country songs - a couple of honky tonkers ("Honky-Tonk Somewhere" and "Cowboys and Friends") and a ballad ("Whiskey to Wine"). ...
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. ...
