Dierks Bentley will perform on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert tonight with collaborator and friend Elle King for the late night debut of their new single, “Different For Girls.” The track is the second single from the No. one album BLACK. Following the multi-week No. one hit “Somewhere On A Beach,” the song also cruises up the radio charts into the Top 25 just weeks after its release.
Critics and fans have found “Different For Girls” to be “a welcome surprise” (InStyle) to the format, as Rolling Stone, People and Stereogum have pinned it as “stand out” on Black, likening it to the “Nashville equivalent of Beyonce’s ‘If I Were A Boy’” (Idolator).
“Very atmospheric. An echoey track backs Dierks and pop chirper Elle as they duet on a lyric that explains how heartbreak affects different sexes. Love that thumping rhythm undertow.” – Music Row
“Smartly laments how the sexes deal with a breakup.” – Newsday
“The same character who handles a breakup with a mind-numbing bender in ‘Beach’ reaches a new level of maturity in ‘Different for Girls,’ recognizing that women typically take a more sensible approach to emotional healing” – Billboard
