Garth Brooks Adds Gigs & Unveils Album Details

Happy Friday to Garth Brooks fans! Not only did the mega-star add performances to his Minneapolis residency, but he’s also revealed the title and cover art for his long awaited album, Man Against Machine.

Marking his first new studio album since 2001’s Scarecrow and his ninth full-length overall, Man Against Machine is due out Nov. 11.

“Music has always been a reflection of where mankind is at the time,” Brooks says. “For 14 years, I have watched heart and soul, dreams and individualism, fighting for their very existence in a world of increasing technology.  This album is a reminder to all those who dream, work, and fight for what they believe; do not give up your vision.”

You’ll probably want to order the new double live 25th anniversary edition that includes 30 songs and 30 videos, as well as an instant download of Brooks’ new single, “People Loving People,” and the bonus track, “Send ‘Em On Down The Road.”

Following last week’s initial announcement of two shows in Minneapolis, Brooks now has 10 gigs to do in the City of Lakes. His residency at the Target Center is scheduled Nov. 6-8 and Nov. 13-15.
