Cole Swindell’s ‘You Should Be Here’ Album to Feature Dierks Bentley
Cole Swindell will release his sophomore album You Should Be Here next month, and the singer has shared that it includes a duet with Dierks Bentley called "Flatliner."
In a post on Facebook early in the day, he told fans to head over to his Instagram account for the full list of songs. The first song on the 14-track release is "Flatliner," which will feature Dierks Bentley. During an interview with Taste of Country Swindell revealed the collaboration was a long time coming.
"I originally wrote it for Dierks four years ago, trying to get him to record it and now we're singing it together," he says. "It's amazing."
Another song, "Middle of a Memory," was sparked by a line from "Kiss" off Swindell's 2014 release Down Home Sessions. On the previously released track he sings, "Girl you left me here with half a beer in the middle of a memory." "Broke Down" was inspired by '90s country, he tells TOC. Overall he says fans can expect more depth as having a string of hit songs has allowed him to explore new territory.
"I think I established that I like to have a good time on the first album," he says smiling.
Swindell recently celebrated his fifth consecutive No. 1 song with the title track of his sophomore album, "You Should Be Here."
“Finding out that you have the No. 1 song in the country while backstage at the Grand Ole Opry is the coolest feeling in the world,” Swindell previously told Billboard. “This song is so special to me, and just hearing fans’ stories and the way country radio has embraced it is amazing. I’m a lucky guy and I know my Dad is smiling down right now, so proud.”
Swindell's album is currently available for pre-order on iTunes. You Should Be Here will be released on May 6.
