With a renewed sense of history and fresh possibilities, Lady Antebellum has released their sixth studio album Heart Break. Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott had a new mission—setting aside time to put themselves in new surroundings, and concentrate on writing and exploring musical endeavors with no distractions. They rented a house in Florida, living and working under the same roof, and when the creative process proved successful, the trio set up a second retreat in southern California.
“When we started working on this record, the goal was to give ourselves some space from the day to day,” said Scott. “Surrounding ourselves in a new environment with sunny beaches and warm weather really helped free our minds to focus solely on our art.” Their desire to shake things up was made evident by their current Top 20 single “You Look Good.”
Elsewhere, Heart Break ranges from the sweet melancholy of “Somebody Else’s Heart” to the dramatic, surging ballad “Hurt.” The trio is currently on tour through mid-October in the U.S. and abroad.
