In a loose, lengthy, and at times emotional press conference Thursday morning in Nashville, Garth Brooks confirmed his expected comeback, announcing a new album and world tour. While the bulk of the information shared was kept intentionally vague, Brooks said he has partnered with Sony Music’s RCA Records to distribute the new material and help with radio promotion. The album — as yet untitled, as confirmed by a Sony representative will be released “around Black Friday,” the retail-centered Friday after Thanksgiving.
