DIERKS BENTLEY AND ELLE KING PERFORM “DIFFERENT FOR GIRLS” ON THE LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT TONIGHT
The Multi-Platform Launch Includes TODAY’s All Access Pass on the Music Video Set
NASHVILLE, TN – July, 19, 2016 – Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley heightens the magnetic lyrics of his latest single “Different For Girls” with friend and 2x Grammy nominated Elle King as the music video premieres tomorrow (7/20) on TODAY and Access Hollywood. Additionally, TODAY host Dylan Dreyer will sit-down with the collaborators on the Brooklyn, NY set as they share a behind the scenes look with fans at the making of the video (7/20 at 9:00A ET/CT on NBC). “Different For Girls” continues to push boundaries at Country radio, moving through the Top 20 this week.
“I like how the song creates some dialogue about the different ways guys and girls deal with heartbreak,” said Bentley. “The video shows both sides of the stereotype and in the end, the ‘girl’ is the one who works through it and is able to move on. Wes and I have made a lot of videos together, and he always nails it.”
Hailed as a stand out track by critics ranging from Rolling Stone to PEOPLE to StereoGum, the thought provoking new video was directed by Wes Edwards and follows two people as they navigate the seemingly insurmountable task of getting over a broken heart.
“Very atmospheric. An echoey track backs Dierks and pop chirper Elle as they duet on a lyric that explains how heartbreak affects different sexes. Love that thumping rhythm undertow.” – Music Row
“Smartly laments how the sexes deal with a breakup.” – Newsday
“The same character who handles a breakup with a mind-numbing bender in ‘Beach’ reaches a new level of maturity in ‘Different for Girls,’ recognizing that women typically take a more sensible approach to emotional healing” – Billboard
With a “reputation as one of the hardest-working entertainers in country music” (Music Row), BLACK ranks as the best selling release of Bentley’s career, after debuting at the No. one position on Billboard’s Top Albums Chart and Top Country Albums chart. “The bluegrass picker, the love song singer and the stadium rocker all packaged together” (Associated Press) continues to connect with fans on his 2016 SOMEWHERE ON A BEACH TOUR as “he has developed a rapport with his fans as a live performer that artists possessing 10 times as much headlining experience can’t boast” (Charlotte Observer).
