Yesterday morning I opened me email to find a message from Mr. Garth Brooks talking about his new album, Man Against Machine which is set to be released in a few weeks. He was excited about this great idea one of the guys at GhostTunes (the site he launched to sell digital versions of his music) came up with. The concept was to record a quick description of the song over the preview sample so that we could hear Garth's own thoughts about each song on the album.
Since the website is called GhostTunes and it was already the end of October they decided to launch the preview on Halloween. Head on over for a sneak peek, it sounds amazing. I can't wait for the album and Garth finally touring again after all these years.
From Garth's email:
"...a friend of mine at GhostTunes asked if we would take a different look at sampling for this new record...he wanted to know if we would speak a little bit on each song as a snippet of the song was playing. Because he asked, we went into studio and tried it. We were all surprised to hear how cool it turned out. Because it was his idea and his ask, I felt it fair to keep this to GhostTunes. Because it is GhostTunes, Halloween seems like the perfect time. So, for 24 hours, starting at midnight Thursday night, October 30th and for the entire 24 hours of Halloween, 2014, a sneak-peek at the new album will be available..."
