Ahead of their June 9th album release, Nashville trio Lady Antebellum released its title cut “Heart Break” on Friday and it suggests the idea of taking a beat before plunging right back into dating.
“I’m single for the summer, I won’t rebound / One lover to another, or be tied down / ‘Till I’m sleeping like a queen in the California king I made,” sings Hillary Scott, taking the lead with support from Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood.
Heart Break, the band’s seventh studio album, was written outside of Tennessee – one of many firsts for the group. Sessions took place in Los Angeles and Florida and were further distinguished by the band living together. Writer/producer Busbee (Maren Morris’s “My Church,” Keith Urban’s “The Fighter”) was also brought in to helm the record.
“We didn’t know creatively where we were going to land, and none of these songs were written six months ago,” Haywood told Rolling Stone Country in January. “All we had was a plan of, ‘We need to be together, live together, write together and work together.'”
Lady Antebellum has a busy summer ahead, taking a top slot at CMA Music Festival in early June amidst 65 shows in six countries as part of their You Look Good World Tour, which also features guests Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young.
