Dierks Bentley was in Phoenix last week as part of his Locked & Reloaded Tour with Miranda Lambert. Sitting down for an interview with the team at Phoenix station KMLE 107.9, He spoke openly and passionately about his upcoming album, Riser, which he recently announced will be hitting stores this fall.

“I kinda threw the playbook away again,” he said of the album. “I’m working with a different producer, different engineer. Just different songs, man, and it feels really fresh.”

Ross Copperman, who co-wrote Dierks’ 2012 hit “Tip It On Back,” was enlisted this time as producer. Dierks also brought back executive producer Arturo Buenahora Jr., who worked on his first two albums. Additionally, some of the music on Riser was cut outside of a traditional recording studio.

“It was important to get out of the studio and sing in different places,” Dierks said in a press statement about the album, “and to do it with other people in the room. That way, you have an audience and you get a sense of what’s working, what’s not working, when it’s feeling good, not feeling good. It brings a little more emotion and energy out of your voice.”

Riser also takes at least some of its inspiration from Dierks’ father, who passed away last year.
