Country superstar Garth Brooks has kept a close relationship with his fans throughout his entire career. Now, he wants to bring listeners into the recording studio during the development of his next studio album.
In a video posted to his official Facebook page, Brooks revealed that he’ll be using the social media platform to bring fans into the recording process.
“We’re gonna make a big move here in a just a little bit with Facebook,” he explains. “We’re gonna bring everybody in on the new album.”
Development of Brooks’ highly-anticipated eleventh studio album was originally scheduled for this summer, but has been delayed to later his year. He and his wife, Trisha Yearwood, are currently finishing up their duet Christmas album, and will begin work on his new solo LP after its completion.
“We’re gonna bring you in on making this album, songwriting sessions, everything from recording,” Brooks revealed. “It’s gonna be a blast.”
It’s unclear if Brooks will simply live-stream the process to fans, or if he’ll use the technology to allow fans to make decisions on how the songs are made. Either way, Brooks will give fans an never-before-seen look into the inner workings of his creative mind.
So far, he hasn’t given many clues to what he has in mind for his followup to 2014’s Man Against Machine. According to a recent interview, he may be planning to use the wonders of technology to record a duet with his late mother, Colleen. “The greatest thing about technology is she made records,” Brooks told Billboard, “so that’s not out of the question.”
