Country star Clint Black is preparing to make a return to the charts with his first new album since 2005.
The Nothin' but the Taillights singer's last record, Drinkin' Songs and Other Logic, hit retailers in 2005 via his own Equity Music Group, but the label has since been shut down and now he's looking for a new home.
He tells Billboard.com, "I'm wrapping up an album right now, and am talking with a record company. I haven't been affiliated with one in a while... I don't know what the record companies' schedules are, but I would really love to get something out."

Country singer Clint Black has been hit with a new legal motion by his former manager for allegedly violating the terms of their settlement agreement.
The 50 year old sued Charles Sussman in 2008 for accounting malpractice and breach of fiduciary duties, but both parties reached an undisclosed settlement in July (12) and the case was subsequently dismissed.
However, Sussman filed legal papers against the musician at the Chancery Court for Davidson County in Tennessee last week (ends21Sep12), alleging he violated the terms of their agreement by issuing a public statement about the end of the litigation.
Adkins lost out to British journalist Piers Morgan in the final of the most recent Apprentice TV stand-off, and now Black is hoping to go one better.
He'll be trying to impress show frontman Donald Trump alongside fellow wannabe entrepreneurs Andrew DICe Clay, Tom Green, Khloe Kardashian, Brian MCKnight, Joan Rivers and her daughter Melissa Rivers when the new season of The Celebrity Apprentice debuts in the U.S. on 1 March (09).
Country rocker Clint Black is suing his manager and accountant, alleging CHARLES SUSSMAN mishandled his finances.
The Grammy winner's lawsuit claims Sussman "repeatedly engaged in self-dealing, negligence, and/or gross negligence" with his millions.
Black accuses his former business partner of persuading him to pump more than $500,000 (GBP333,000) into Equity Records, the small label the pair hold shares in.
He claims he was tricked into backing the label, and led to believe it had rising country stars Little Big Town signed to a longterm contract - when in fact the group had only a two-album deal and quit soon after.
