Lady Antebellum announced today that their third Capitol Nashville studio album, “Own The Night,” will be released on September 13, 2011. The album’s lead track, “Just A Kiss,” has become the fastest rising single of the group’s career. After only five weeks, it has already climbed into the Top 15 on Billboard’s Country Singles chart.
“We took more time to write and record this record than we’ve ever done before,” says Charles Kelley. “I remember looking at Hillary and Dave at the Grammy’s 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’s exactly what we did,” adds Dave Haywood. ”We packed up and flew home from LA, 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 of our favorite songs on the new record is called ‘We Owned The Night,’ which is about a special once-in-a-lifetime moment, and we thought that naming the album around that same sentiment was really appropriate,” says Hillary Scott. “It’s also about the experience we want to create every night in concert for our fans…together, we own the night!”
“Own The Night” is the band’s third album, following “Need You Now” that has sold over 5 million albums across the globe. Visit www.ladyantebellum.com for updates on “Own The Night” and for a full list of upcoming tour dates.
