The rumour mill can rest easy now as Lady Antebellum have confirmed that their much discussed upcoming album ‘Ocean’ will be released on November 15. You can pre-order the record here.
For months, fans and critics have speculated for months now that a new album has been in the works for Lady A – who are made up of Charles Kelly, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood – and now the news has been confirmed.
Celebrated producer Dann Huff is the man behind the buttons for the record, in what is his first time working with the trio. Previously released singles What If I Never Get Over You and Pictures will both feature on the album.
Speaking about what is Lady Antebellum’s eighth studio album, both Haywood and Scott offered an insight into the album and as Haywood praised Huff’s contribution, Scott opened up on some of the meaning behind the album.
“There’s this theme of returning to the core of who we are—as writers, vocalists and people—that came out in each of these songs,” Haywood said. “Our time in the studio with Dann had an excitement that felt like we were making our first album all over again.”
“It’s such a cinematic and theatrical melody that really tied together our standpoint of this record as a whole,” adds Scott. “’Ocean’ stands for all of the things that we think and feel when we hear the word. Its parallel with those feelings much like the songs about barely keeping your head above water and others that make you feel like everything is smooth sailing.”
Earlier this year, Lady Antebellum headlined C2C 2019 in the UK, performing at London’s O2 Arena, Glasgow’s SSE Hydro Arena and Dublin’s 3Arena, while the group are also up for a CMA Award, being nominated for Vocal Group of the Year.
