Brantley Gilbert Announces Deluxe Edition of ‘So Help Me God’
Brantley Gilbert isn't quite done with his So Help Me God album era. The singer announced Friday (Feb. 24) the addition of five new tracks to the project for the So Help Me God (Deluxe Edition), arriving April 21.
The five new tracks are "Wrote the Book Around Here," "Tailgates of Heaven," "Bury Me Upside Down," "All Over the Map" and "Behind the Times." Gilbert co-wrote each of the new tracks, and he collaborated with a group of songwriters including Michael Ray, Randy Montana, Hunter Phelps and more.
According to Gilbert, the new tracks follow the first portion of the album in showcasing his diverse musical styles.
"We’ve always been a little outside of the box when it comes to writing and recording,” the star says in a press release. “It’s not necessarily something we’ve done on purpose, but it tends to happen because we always try to serve the song as it takes shape rather than shaping the song to serve us."
“If a song is asking for a harder edge, let’s do that," he adds. "If it feels a little more introspective, let’s lean into that. This album intersects across a lot of different genres, and we’re proud to say that it’s something that happened naturally."
Of the new songs, "Behind the Times" reportedly "expands" upon his current single, "Heaven by Then," featuring Vince Gill and Blake Shelton. The original edition of the album was released on Nov. 10, 2022.
The deluxe edition of So Help Me God is available for pre-order here. The release comes months before Gilbert hits the road with Nickelback for the Get Rollin' Tour.
