Get excited, Garth Brooks fans.

The singer, who just inked a new deal with Sony Music and RCA Records Label Nashville, announced today that he's heading back to the studio to record his first studio album in nearly a decade.

"Scared? Yes. Old? Yes," he said, according to USA Today. "My bigger hope is that I don't regret this day."

Brooks, 52, officially retired from music in 2001. But he has already begun working on music, and said that one song "might very well have taken the place of 'The Dance' for me as my favorite song ever."

"I've never had more fun in my life making music," he continued, adding that fans will hear new music around the end of this month. "I'm getting my a** kicked by the songwriters right now. ... We're cutting everything but Garth stuff right now. The level of songwriting stunned me."

The complete album is likely to drop around November and for the first time with his music will be available digitally.
