Dixie Chicks' lead singer Natalie Maines was a guest at the new Spiritualgasm podcast published on Friday (Sept. 20), where she chatted a bit about the group's much anticipated fifth album.
“I had a lot to say,” she said of the record, which she said was tentatively titled Gaslighter and partially inspired by her divorce from actor Adrian Pasdar. “Songwriting is really hard for me, and I think for many years, I didn’t want to analyze my life or my relationship. I was just in it and dedicated and devoted, and if I had started writing songs about it … I don’t want to say I was in a ‘survival mode,’ but I was just not ready to open up like that.”
“Our last album was the most personal and autobiographical we’ve ever been,” she added. “And then this one is 10 times that.” The girl group has been teasing the upcoming album since last year, posting a series of photos in the studio with producer Jack Antonoff.
