Lady Antebellum is back!
After a brief hiatus last year while the group's members, Charles Kelley, Dave Haywood and Hillary Scott, took time to work on solo projects, the country trio has reunited to release "You Look Good," the first single from their upcoming sixth studio album, Heart Break, which will be released June 9.
"We knew right away that we had to name this album after a track that is a play on the word ‘heartbreak,’” Scott explained of the album title. ”It’s all about those personal growths everyone goes through and it was liberating to get back in the studio with Charles and Dave to intertwine those feelings into the recording process. I feel like we’ve reemerged stronger than ever and I can’t wait to share more music!"
The trio released a lyric video for "You Look Good" on Thursday, and the intimate clip gives fans a look at the group's approach to working on their new material.
Written by Hillary Lindsey, Ryan Hurd and busbee, and produced by busbee, the track features a funked-up sound, incorporating trumpets, a slinky baseline and plenty of fun. The song marks a bit of a new sound for the group, but stays true to their tight harmonies and melodic vocals.
“We’ve always loved experimenting with different instruments and sounds in the studio, but we’ve never used horns before,” Haywood shared. “The energy they brought to this song is really fun and was validation for all three of us that it had to be our first single back.”
Along with the song, the trio also announced their You Look Good World Tour, which will take Lady A around the globe and feature special guests Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young. The group shared that they're looking forward to performing their new track on the road.
"There’s also something contagious about the chorus that will be perfect in our live shows this year,” said Kelley. “We knew after the time off that we wanted to get back out on the road in a big way. We couldn’t be more ready to get back out there with the fans and hopefully make a few new ones too."
