Dierks Bentley Previews New Song ‘5-1-5-0′ – Exclusive Video

Dierks Bentley
James Minchin III

Dierks Bentley is preparing to release his new album ‘Home’ by giving fans a sneak peek at some of the songs they can find on it. In addition to the title track, which is a Top 10 hit, Bentley has included a song called ‘5-1-5-0′ on the album. The singer talks about the party song in a video exclusive to Taste of Country, seen below.

“I had written this song on the beach one day and I said, ‘Let’s get 5150,’ and he was asking me what ‘5150’ meant,” Bentley says in the clip. Rock fans know it as a Van Halen album and song from 1986, but the Arizona born singer explains that it’s also the police code for a criminally insane person.

5-1-5-0, somebody call the po-po / I’m going crazy / Thinkin’ about you baby,” Bentley can be heard singing in the video.

“We were laughing about it for a while, and one day we sat down and were like, ‘All right, let’s try to write it,'” he explains.

The rolling, uptempo cut is a world away from the poignancy Bentley displays on the album’s title track — but as his fans know, he is very capable of changing moods on the turn of a dime. Throughout his career, he’s alternated between emotional ballads and loud and rowdy barroom jams. It sounds like ‘Home’ — in stores on Feb. 7 — will include more of that formula.
