Lady Antebellum‘s fourth studio album, Golden, hits stores and online digital retailers today (Tuesday, May 7th). The subject matter on Golden runs the gamut, but it’s all very relatable to trio members Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott.
Hillary tells us their hope is that the fans can find themselves in these songs as well. “I hope that they listen to this record and relate to it. I think we chose the songs and wrote the songs we did, because we’ve either lived them or really related to them and there’s a lot of subject matter on this record too. And there’s songs on there, that’ll make you think, there’s songs on (the album) that’ll make you cry, there’s songs on there that make you wanna go out downtown with your friends. It’s just a very real human album, I mean, for lack of a better word. It’s all about just what you want to experience as a human being and love and the emotions and the fun memories you make and reflecting back on memories you’ve made.”
Lady Antebellum’s new single is called “Goodbye Time.” The first release from Golden, “Downtown,” has already topped the country charts.
