Dierks Bentley has released a new single to country radio. ‘I Hold On’ is from his forthcoming album, ‘Riser.’

Bentley wrote the new song with Brett James. The lyrics pin spiritual questions to material possessions.

“If you asked me to sum myself up in three minutes, I’d play ‘I Hold On’ for you. At first listen, you might think it’s about my truck or my guitar, but it’s really about why I do some of the things I do and the kind of guy I am,” explains Bentley.

He adds, “The chorus is really universal…it’s about faith, love and freedom…I don’t think there’s a country fan out there who doesn’t live with those as big priorities. I hope through this song I’m able to let the fans into my heart and my mind a little more, and that they can also relate it back to themselves and their own lives.”

‘Riser’ is Bentley’s seventh solo album, and it’s a departure for the singer-songwriter. “I wanted the album to be heavier and a little darker,” Bentley tells Billboard. “I think a good country album should have a little bit of it all.”

No release date has been announced for ‘Riser.’
