Lady A Dives Back In With ‘Ocean’ Set For November

Lady Antebellum has revealed some details on their upcoming new album Ocean, set for release Nov. 15 on BMLG Records. The project marks a new beginning for the multi-Platinum trio that brings them back to their roots, showcasing their familiar harmonies and individual instruments on the 13-track project.

Lady A penned many of the tracks on the album along with writers including Corey Crowder, Sarah Buxton, Ryan Hurd, Hillary Lindsey, Tenille Townes, Laura Veltz, and more. Ocean is available now for pre-order at all digital retailers, and fans pre-ordering will immediately receive a download of the title track along with previously released songs “Pictures” and their Top 15 single “What If I Never Get Over You.”

“There’s this theme of returning to the core of who we are—as writers, vocalists and people—that came out in each of these songs,” Dave Haywood explains. “Our time in the studio with Dann had an excitement that felt like we were making our first album all over again.”

Among the tracks on the new album are “You Can Do You,” a swaying live-and-let-live anthem inspired by the hustle of Nashville’s crowded streets, “Boots,” a heartland rocker with Celtic fiddles, the swirling “The Thing That Wrecks You,” featuring Little Big Town on backing vocals, “Be Patient with My Love,” which Kelley co-wrote as a beautiful ode to commitment, and the title track featuring Hillary Scott‘s bare vocal.

“It’s such a cinematic and theatrical melody with a message that became the cornerstone of this record for us,” said Scott about the title track. “Ocean is all of the things that we think and feel when we hear the word. This album is immersed in life stories about barely keeping your head above water all the way to those times that make you feel like everything is smooth sailing.”
