Lady Antebellum’s New Album ‘Own the Night’ to Drop on September 13
Finally, we've got a release date for that new Lady Antebellum album that the trio has been hyping for months and months. 'Own the Night' will hit shelves on September 13.
'Just a Kiss,' the leading single from the record which shocked the charts -- and the band -- when it debuted at No. 7 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, has been Lady A's fastest soaring single.
Kelley said back in January that the band had no intentions of chasing their immensely successful sophomore album, 'Need You Now,' with this new LP, but it seems like they may have caught up anyhow. “If we were to use the success of ‘Need You Now’ as the barometer for every other song, then we’ll probably be highly disappointed,” Kelley then noted.
“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,'" he recalls in a new press release. So that's what they did. "We packed up and flew home from L.A., cleared our calendar of everything and went into rehearsal with the musicians. I love that part of recording, taking the songs we've written and bringing them to life with these musicians who are so incredibly talented."
One song in particular, dubbed 'We Owned the Night,' is a favorite of the trio according to Hillary Scott, and it touches on a "special once-in-a-lifetime moment." She adds, "It's also about the experience we want to create every night in concert for our fans. Together, we own the night!" It was only natural that the name of the record reflect that feeling -- hence 'Own the Night.'
Will 'Own the Night' stand up to the five-time Grammy-winning 'Need You Now?' We'll have to wait and see, but 'Just a Kiss' is a pretty good indication that more Grammys are on the horizon.
