Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley has released the title track from his critically acclaimed album BLACK (Capitol Records Nashville). Written by Bentley, Ross Copperman and Ashley Gorley, “Black” has been called one of “the sexiest songs of his career” by the Associated Press and Rolling Stone and is applauded for being “rich with detailed lyrics only made even more vivid by Bentley’s rasp” (Esquire).
“It’s no secret that this record is named after my wife, and she was both brave and generous to let me write about our relationship as the foundation of a lot of these songs,” said Bentley. “I’ve talked about how it explores some of the darker corners and edges of the heart, what happens in the black of night, and this song was really central to forming the rest of the project. It’s probably not what Cass expected when I told her I’d written a love song and named it after her, it’s more of an in-the-moment love song.”
