Garth Brooks' new studio album, Fun, will be released on Friday (Nov. 20th), and the project has been a long time in the making. His last album, Gunslinger, was released four years ago, and a lot has happened in the meantime.

Garth tells us Fun captures his life over the span of that time. [“An album should reflect who the artist is at the time that artist is making that album. So, if the album takes two months, that’s who the artist was when the artist made the album. If it’s like an Eagles record that sometimes . . . or a Boston record that sometimes took, you know, years to create, it’s still a reflection of who that artist is at the time. So it’s no different with Fun. As long as it’s been put off because of the pandemic, it's still a reflection of who the artist is.”] SOUNDCUE (:29 OC: . . . the artist is.)

Fun includes “Dive Bar,” Garth’s hit with Blake Shelton, along with “All Day Long” and the ballad “Stronger Than Me” among it’s 14 tracks. The superstar will perform some songs and talk all about Fun during this morning's (Thursday, Nov. 19th) Good Morning America on ABC.

Garth’s Triple Live Deluxe album will also be released on Friday.
