After taking a hiatus in fall 2015, Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood got their creative juices flowing by spending about two months together in sunny Florida and Los Angeles last summer. In the process, the Grammy-winning trio created their upcoming sixth studio album, Heart Break, which drops on June 9.
The 13-song offering was produced by busbee and features a number of well-known songwriters, including Hillary Lindsey, Jesse Frasure, Shane McAnally and more.
“When we started working on this record, the goal was to give ourselves some space from the day to day,” said Hillary Scott. “Surrounding ourselves in a new environment with sunny beaches and warm weather really helped free our minds to focus solely on our art. We took some of our favorite writers and other writers we hadn’t worked with before to a new inspiring backdrop, where we were able to just write and soak up the journey. And it was on our first trip in Florida when we wrote ‘Heart Break’ that we felt it all click.”
Lady A posted a behind-the-scenes video on Twitter today (April 28) that documents some of the trio’s time together in L.A. Check it out.
