Greatly anticipated Dixie Chicks comeback single 'Gaslighter' to be released on March 4

Dixie Chicks will be releasing their first single for close to a decade and a half in the shape of Gaslighter, which will be shared on March 4.
Gaslighter will be the first single that the trio – made up of Natalie Maines, Emily Robison and Martie Maguire – have released since 2007’s The Neighbor, though they did feature on Taylor Swift’s Soon You’ll Get Better, which was released last year.
The song will operate as the title track of the upcoming album of the same name, which is due for release at some point in 2020. The group posted a very brief clip of the song on their social media, along with the dictionary definition for the word ‘Gaslighter’.
Speaking to Rolling Stone about the record, Maines said that it is partially inspired by her on-going divorce with Adrian Pasdar and while she finds songwriting difficult, she felt she had a lot to say on the matter, while this will resemble the most open Dixie Chicks record yet.
“I had a lot to say,”  Maines said. “Songwriting is really hard for me and I think for many years, I didn’t want to analyse my life or my relationship. I was just in it and dedicated and devoted and if I had started writing songs about it … I don’t want to say I was in a ‘survival mode,’ but I was just not ready to open up like that. Our last album was the most personal and autobiographical we’ve ever been and then this one is 10 times that.”
As of yet, there is no indication that the trio will seek to tour the album, but in the same Rolling Stone interview, Maines did suggest that it was a strong possibility.
