American superstars Lady Antebellum is back with a brand new CD, Own The Night, which will be released on 12 September. It's the follow up to the five-million selling CD, Need You Know. For a teaser on the new CD, the band released their new singe, Just A Kiss this week. The video can be viewed here.
Just A Kiss is an epic rock ballad which boasts a chorus destined to be sung in arenas around the world. A massive hit in the US, where it has sold over a million copies, it entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart at no.7 on its week of release, one of the highest-charting debuts in Billboard’s 52-year history.
Own The Night was written and recorded in Nashville earlier this year, with the three band members – singers Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott, and multi-instrumentalist Dave Haywood – co-writing ten of the twelve tracks. The album was co-produced by the band with long-standing collaborator Paul Worley.
“We took more time to write and record this record than we've ever done before,” says singer Charles Kelley. “I remember looking at Hillary and Dave at the Grammys this year, on the wildest night of our lives, and saying 'this is amazing…we'll never get to experience a moment like this again, but now we have to go home and get to work.'" And that work has created a beautiful, moving, dramatic and ambitious album, which ranges from classic pop songs to epic sweeping ballads, gruff Americana to country-tinged rock.
