Country superstar Garth Brooks, who recently launched his current, long-awaited tour, in the Chicago area, has announced when he’s releasting his first album in 13 years.

At a press conference in Atlanta, where his tour is currently playing, Brooks revealed the still-untitled CD will hit stores and be available on Nov. 11. It’s the first album he’s done since “Scarecrow” in 2001. While we don’t yet know the title of the disc, it will include Brooks’ current radio single, “People Loving People.”

Brooks’ wife, Trisha Yearwood, is also touring with her husband.
