The last time that Garth Brooks went big, it was with Wal-Mart. This time around, he has partnered with Target for the new 10-CD set Garth Brooks: The Ultimate Collection.
The new release, out November 11, will actually be ahead of the yet-to-be-announced new set and will include an exclusive version of the new album, featuring Target bonus tracks, and nine discs of curated music from his celebrated catalog, remastered in thematic playlists and featuring a selection of previously unreleased songs.
Brooks said of the new deal "Target has always been a friend to artists and their music. I can’t begin to describe how excited I am to be partnering with them. This holiday season is going to be amazing with a new album, plus a boxed set with never-before-released music from the vault and music you can’t hear or get anywhere else."
Mark Tritton, Executive VP and Chief Merchandising Officer for Target added "Simply put, Garth is in a league of his own. He is unquestionably one of the most accomplished and celebrated musicians, with a fan base that spans all ages and genres. We’re thrilled to welcome Garth into the Target family, and are confident that the boxed set we’ve created with him, which we’ll offer for an unbeatable value, will be at the top of many wish lists this holiday season."
Brooks told The Tennessean that his themed discs will include ones of driving song, cowboy songs and love songs.
So far, there are no track lists and no details on the new album which is still being recorded in Nashville between Brooks' tour stops. The press release said that track lists would be release "later this fall".
