Surprise! As promisedDierks Bentley has some exciting news for the fans.

After announcing that he will be releasing his eighth studio album Black early this year, the country singer shared that the album's lead single will be "Somewhere on a Beach," which he will perform for the first time today on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

But that's not all, of course. Bentley also revealed that he's going on the road! The multi-platinum star will begin the United States leg of his 2016 Somewhere on the Beach tour on May 12 in Holmdel, N.J., at the PNC Bank Arts Center with Randy Houser and special guest Cam.

"Just wanna say thank you so much for having so much fun with the 'Somewhere on a Beach' announcement," Bentley said in a video to E! News.

"Love you guys. So looking forward to the summer, the tour, the new single. It's gonna be a big 2016, so thank you guys. See you somewhere on a beach this summer."

Additionally, Bentley says in a statement: "This album is about ALL phases of a relationship, including the breakups. 'Beach' is a pretty blunt take on that wild rebound we've all had or maybe imagined having. The carefree attitude is exactly the spirit we wanted to bring out on the road this year."

"I've toured with Randy before, and he's just a great dude—on stage and backstage. And I've gotten to know Cam a little over the last year, and she's fun as hell too and so talented. It's going to be a big summer for sure."
