NASHVILLE, TN – Jun. 01, 2017 – Leading into the highly anticipated release of their seventh studio album HEART BREAK (Capitol Records Nashville) on June 9, NPR‘s “First Listen” is exclusively streaming the album in its entirety. While Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott “experiment with bringing individual vantage points to the fore and representing male and female perspectives more distinctly” the 13-track record is highlighted to “serve their native genre well, but also be irresistible to broader audiences” (NPR).
“Pivoting from the ardent, dead-on vocal attack they’ve been known for, they loosen their phrasing and toy with sinuous syncopation, to pleasing effect.”
“In this batch of songs, Lady A embraces the contrast between the outlook on age that’s often defined country music in the past (acknowledging the struggles, pleasures and sacrifices of settled adulthood) and one that’s risen to prominence in recent years (celebrating youthful freedom).”
With a new sense of history and possibilities, Lady Antebellum’s seventh studio album HEART BREAK had the group on a new mission — setting aside time to put themselves in new surroundings, and concentrate on writing and exploring musical endeavors with no distractions. With busbee in the producer’s chair, the trio had a hand in writing eleven songs on HEART BREAK, resulting in their most intimate and heartfelt work to date. HEART BREAK follows more than 18 million units, nine No. One hits, ACM and CMA “Vocal Group of the Year” trophies three years in a row, and countless other honors including Billboard Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards and Teen Choice Awards. With “big production and sound” (OC Register) along with “a fresh twist with the addition of a live horn section” (CMT) the seven-time Grammy award winning trio returns to the West Cost this weekend with their YOU LOOK GOOD WORLD TOUR.
