Clint Black Inks Deal With Thirty Tigers, Preps New Album

Good news for Clint Black fans! The artist has just signed a new record deal and is preparing to start work on his ninth studio album.

The performer inked a new deal with Thirty Tigers, who have been making waves in Nashville for their work with acts like Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell and Aaron Watson. The company’s innovative, hands-on approach to the behind-the-scenes areas of the music industry is one that drove Black to sign the deal. “Thirty Tigers has an independent spirit,” Black said in a statement, according to the Boot. “They believe in allowing artists the creative freedom to create music we can all be passionate about. What’s more, I value and appreciate that their focus lies squarely where it belongs — on the music.”

David Macias, president of Thirty Tigers, expressed their excitement about their new relationship with the 53-year-old singer and songwriter. “Thirty Tigers is a place that values not only great songwriters but great performers,” Macias said of Black. “Clint is one of the format’s best at both. I could not be more excited about this new album — it’s long overdue — and for Thirty Tigers to get the chance to work with an artist of Clint’s caliber, whose music I’ve loved for so long, is truly an honor.”
Black’s currently untitled album will be his first completely new project since 2005′s Drinkin’ Songs and Other Logic. The release date for his new album has not yet been set.
