Lady Antebellum

Album: Heart Break
Release Date: June 9th
A lot has changed for Lady Antebellum since the lukewarm reception to their last LP, 2014's 747, so their upcoming record Heart Break promises a new look after a long hiatus. The trio's Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott stayed busy with outside projects, including solo records for Kelley and Scott. Coming back together and sequestering for a writing session in Florida and California, the group produced much of the album's material. Lady A also teamed up with an old ally, Maren Morris producer Busbee, who scored his first Number One hit with the group's "Our Kind of Love" in 2010. But Heart Break doesn't look likely to be a rehashing of old successes, as funky new single "You Look Good" sounds unlike anything they've done before. J.G.
