On the eve of the release of his album Black, Dierks Bentley has released “Different For Girls,” featuring Elle King. While it’s the follow up single to his #1 hit “Somewhere On A Beach,” the two songs couldn’t be more sonically different. “Different” is a moody breakup tale describing the double standards for guys and girls during a split. Ah, Dierks, this is the you we’ve come to known and love.
The track was written by J.T Harding and Shane McAnally. Of the song, Dierks says:
‘Different For Girls’ definitely has a little bit of a different theme to it. Just looking at the world from a different perspective, a more mature perspective. I just think that there [are] some double standards that exist, and the song kind of draws attention to that. And at the same time, it recognizes that guys and girls do handle break-ups and heartaches a little bit differently.
