The Band Perry Reveal Inspiration Behind New Album, Hint at Surprises
The Band Perry say they have a big announcement coming in a couple of weeks. With a new album nearly finished, the trio are ready to share, but they're staying tight-lipped about the details ... sort of.
Kimberly Perry revealed the inspiration behind their third studio album during a conversation with Taste of Country at Country Jam in Grand Junction, Colo.
“We always make albums very visually," she reveals. "Our first album, we had pictures of county fairs on our mind, very romantic things. On Pioneer we envisioned marching bands and armies moving forward together, it was a very intense album.”
For the third album, the recently-wed Perry says she and brothers Neil and Reid are "dreaming in color." "Everything is so colorful and enthusiastic and happy. We’re walking out of the studio with giant smiles on our faces.”
Another nugget from the group's Country Jam interview was the late addition of a well-known collaborator.
"There are some very unsuspecting country music fans out in the world," Perry says, careful to protect this person or group of persons' identity. "Some folks you have no idea are obsessed with country and cowboy boots and cowboy hats.”
It's been over two years since the Band Perry released a new studio album. The gold-certified Pioneer followed the trio's platinum-selling self-titled album, released in 2010 and featuring their hit "If I Die Young."
