New music is on the way for Lady Antebellum. The country trio has revealed the title track for its forthcoming album Ocean, due out Nov. 15 on BMLG Records. The stirring piano ballad features Hillary Scott’s emotive vocals as she struggles in a relationship with a partner who wants to say goodbye.
“It’s such a cinematic and theatrical melody with a message that became the cornerstone of this record for us,” Scott said in a statement. “Ocean is all of the things that we think and feel when we hear the word. This album is immersed in life stories about barely keeping your head above water all the way to those times that make you feel like everything is smooth sailing.”
Adds bandmate Dave Haywood, “There’s this theme of returning to the core of who we are — as writers, vocalists and people — that came out in each of these songs. Our time in the studio with Dann [Huff] had an excitement that felt like we were making our first album all over again.”
Ocean marks the group’s first release on BMLG Records as well as first time working with Dann Huff as producer.
