Dierks Bentley recently shared “Something Real,” the latest single from his tenth studio album, Gravel & Gold.
In “Something Real,” Bentley asserts the importance of searching for honesty and authenticity in a surface level world.
Written on a Colorado writing retreat with Ross Copperman, Michael Hardy, Ashley Gorley, and Luke Dick, Bentley again finds himself pushing new sonic territory, this time by layering pedal steel, mandolin, banjo and guitar sounds.
“Something Real” follows 22 No. 1 hits including Gravel & Gold‘s chart-topping lead single “Gold.”
“I think we are all seeking something a little deeper than what’s on the surface, the things we see on social media,” said Bentley. “For me, that looks like putting my phone down, getting out in nature with my family, writing songs with my friends.doing the things where I find real connection.”
He added, “There is always a little hesitation about putting a new song in the set, but it’s sounding so good live and I appreciate the fans who already know it and are singing it back to us.”
Bentley is currently on his Gravel & Gold Tour with Jordan Davis as direct support with a diverse group of special guests joining throughout the 28-city trek.
