The Dixie Chicks are in Los Angeles recording a new album with producer Rick Rubin. No release date has been pegged for the Open Wide/Columbia set, which will be the follow-up to 2002’s “Home.” As previously reported, Rubin recently produced the next Columbia album from veteran vocalist Neil Diamond, due this summer.
“Home” debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 5.8 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The Chicks have been off the road since a run on last fall’s Vote for Change tour. Earlier this month, group member Emily Robison gave birth two twins named Julianna and Henry.
