Lady Antebellum release new single ‘What If I Never Get Over You’
Lady Antebellum have announced their return to country music airwaves with the release of their new single, What If I Never Got Over You. You can listen to the track here.
The song – produced by Dan Huff – is built around despair over an ending relationship, with Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott duetting while Dave Haywood holds everything together from an instrumental aspect.
Speaking about the track, the band members explained that the song represents Lady A going back to their roots in a number of ways and that they really appreciate being able to get the big questions represented within their songs.
“I feel like What If I Never Get Over You is a turn back to our beginning, both in the sound and the core of who we are,” said Haywood. “We love being able to put out those big questions about lost love, like ‘What if time doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do?’ or ‘What if I never move on from this relationship?”
“We hit this place of wanting to go back to where we came from,” explained Scott. “This single is a great example of that. We’ve got 13 years of life together, of work together, of ups and downs in our personal lives. All of that kind of encompasses one same feeling: ‘We’re here, we’re loving it, and we’re turning over a new leaf — one that feels really familiar and authentic to ourselves as a band.'”
“It’s been several years since we’ve had a chance to release a duet like this as a single,” added Kelley. “When we played it for our team their excitement reassured us this song was the one to lead with out of the gate. It’s been a bit of our magic from day one. Our very first song in 2006, All We’d Ever Need‘ was just written for Hillary, but she said, “Charles, you should sing a verse too” and that’s how we started the co-lead singer thing.”
