Garth Brooks‘ first, brand-new studio album in 13 years is out now. Man Against Machine finds Garth revisiting some familiar musical territory for his longtime fans.
“It’s a Garth record, which means we have everything,” he says. “We have everything from cowboy songs, we have everything to waltzes to things that people have never heard in country music before. That’s kind of what we do. We just follow our hearts.”
While Garth didn’t write many of the songs on Man Against Machine, he thinks this material holds up to his classic material.
Says Garth, “These are songs that are comin’ that have some pretty hellacious substance in it.”
Garth enlisted a few new studio musicians to work on Man Against Machine, but most of the players on this project have performed on every Garth record since his 1989 debut.
He says, “Walkin’ in the studio and seein’ those guys that I hadn’t seen in years, that were my brothers that I just loved to death that we made all the early records with, was a wonderful feeling. And I think that translates into the music and onto the record.”
Man Against Machine is available at all physical retailers and online at Ghostunes.com.

“Man Against Machine”
