Dierks Bentley has released the music video for Black, the title track and new single from his latest album.
Filmed in remote areas of Iceland, Black features Dierks’ wife Cassidy. The shoot took four days and the video features breathtaking landscapes, stunning supernatural effects and intimate moments between Dierks and Cassidy.
“We’ve been talking about Iceland as a location since before I even released the album last year, but I never thought we’d actually go. The next thing I know, there’s a shoot booked and we are standing on the side of a glacier half-dressed,” laughed Bentley. “The crew wasn’t kidding around… it was four long, cold days in some really treacherous conditions. We were on a lot of the same locations that Game Of Thrones and the Star Wars films have shot, and it’s just crazy what those people go through every day. I had the idea of putting my wife in the video, which is totally taking her out of her comfort zone, but I just couldn’t imagine doing a video for this song without her in it and she reluctantly agreed…but then totally NAILED it. It wouldn’t have been genuine without her. I think the end result is something really special, and it was a trip of a lifetime for everyone involved.”
Black is the follow-up to Dierks’ huge hit Different For Girls with Elle King. On its release Black became the best-selling debut of his career.
This week Dierks launches his What The Hell World Tour in Dayton, OH. For a full list of tour dates and more information head over to www.dierks.com.
