Lady Antebellum Stays 'Golden' on New Album

Follow-up to "Own The Night" due out in May.

After previewing their fourth studio album with the single "Downtown" last month, Lady Antebellum has announced the details of the follow-up to 2011's "Own The Night." "Golden" will be released on May 7 through Capitol Nashville.

The Grammy-winning country outfit once again linked up with producer Paul Worley for "Golden," which also follows last year's holiday release "On This Winter's Night." The album will precede the birth of singer-songwriter Hillary Scott's first child, which is due this summer.


"Writing and recording this record really took us back to when we first met each other," says Scott, who makes up Lady A with Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley, in a press statement. "When I first met the boys, we spent a lot of time around the piano at the house they lived in at the time. We didn’t really know each other at all, but there was still some magic and then the harmonies – that’s how it all started - that blend of our voices and that blend of our songwriting craft. So, it’s exciting that even on our fourth record, we can still find that."

Although a final track list has not yet been announced, but Huffington Post points out that some song titles include "Goodbye Town" and "I'm a Better Man." The group wrote the new batch of songs last year before hitting the studio last August.

Last week, the uptempo "Downtown" debuted at No. 45 on the Hot 100 chart, and the track has sold 724,000 downloads to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
