Lady Antebellum will release their fifth studio album, 747, on September 30. The album’s lead single, “Bartender,” is soaring up the country chart as one of Lady Antebellum’s fastest rising singles to date. Deciding on a title for the project was a simple group decision.
“We unanimously knew that our album title had to be 747,” Hillary Scott said. “The track itself has this pushing, driving spirit about it that sums up our attitude right now. We are pushing ourselves as a band and as songwriters, taking ourselves out of our comfort zone and not taking ourselves too seriously. There’s an urgency and an energy to it that we’ve never released before.”
“We are so ready to get this music out,” Charles Kelley added. “To get the reaction we’ve gotten from ‘Bartender’ has only made us more fired up about the rest of these songs!”
“We had the opportunity to write with some new songwriters and really dig for outside songs that were songs we wish we’d written,” Dave Haywood said. “As we took them into the studio, we changed our approach and challenged ourselves to try some new things that were outside of what we’d done before.”
