Dierks Bentley Releases Duet, Plans Downtown Pop-Up Store

Dierks Elle

Dierks Bentley has released a duet with Elle King titled “Different for Girls” as the second single from his new album, Black. The single is available now at country radio. Black will be released by Capitol Records Nashville on Friday (May 27). The song was written by Shane McAnally and JT Harding.

“There is a real honesty in these lyrics, and I haven’t heard a song written this way before. The differences in how guys and girls deal with a broken heart is really interesting material to me,” shared Bentley. “Having two daughters certainly has changed the way I see the world and what they have ahead. What I love about Elle being on this record, besides her uniquely powerful but vulnerable voice, is that she’s a total badass. Having her perspective really helps tell the complete story.”

“When I got the call that Dierks wanted me to sing with him I was very honored, but I get a little shy when I’m asked to sing other people’s songs – let alone a duet with one of the biggest country stars in the world,” added King. “Our voices blended really well together. Since I often write from the male perspective, I was really excited to be a part of someone else’s story that is jumping outside of the norm for a relationship song. The lyrics are really smart and I love that he is bringing a lot of attitude to modern country music.”

In related news, Bentley will bring his Black Pop-Up shop to Nashville at the corner of 4th and Broadway through CMA Music Fest weekend, as visitors can partake in the Black listening station and have the opportunity to purchase the new album along with exclusive merchandise and “enter to win” opportunities only available at the shop.

“It’s pretty cool to have a Pop-Up shop dedicated to this album just a few doors down from the most legendary honky-tonks of all-time,” said Bentley. “It’s also the future home of my bar Whiskey Row, so it’s great to be able to use the space and give the fans a place to chill during Music Fest before we start construction in there. I may have to swing by myself at some point to check it out!”
