Lady Antebellum: the Grammy award-winning trio are back and better than ever

Here we select some superb new tracks from Lady Antebellum, Iiola, The Adelaides, James Rose, The Rising and HD Hausmann


LADY ANTEBELLUM
WHAT IF I NEVER GET OVER YOU
BMLF Records

The Grammy award-winning trio return with their best release since their 2010 record-breaking hit Need You Now. The new single is a break-up anthem that showcases the breathtaking harmonies within the group dynamic, while the sweeping country production gives it a gorgeous vibe. This has the potential to become a global smash hit. Lady Antebellum are back and better than ever. LK


IIOLA
CHEWING GUM
Lovejoy Records

If Billie Eilish’s meteoric rise teaches us anything it’s that there’s plenty of love out in the world for adventurous and leftfield pop music. Now’s the turn of Wiltshire singer-songwriter Iiola to demand our attention. Her latest composition is all synths and broken beats, held together by an intoxicating vocal performance. DH


THE ADELAIDES
LEAVE
Crimson

The fast-rising UK country trio impress with their infectious debut release. Fans have been waiting several years for the girls to share their first official single and they will not be disappointed with this Carly Pearce-tinged track. It has an insanely catchy chorus combined with a pop-tinged production and guitar-led country sounds. It is a truly wonderful song that has the potential to put The Adelaides on the map as one of Britain’s most exciting acts. LK


JAMES ROSE
SIMPLICITY
Self-release

It’s no surprise to learn that James Rose has previously lived in the UK as there’s a distinct Beatles vibe to this Californian songwriter’s new single. Its message of peace and understanding only adds to that feel and a little West Coast warmth finishes things off nicely. DH


THE RISING
MOVING ON
Renegade Maverick Records

The Irish country/pop/rock group’s official single edit and title track of their latest sophomore LP has been given a slick makeover and the results are brilliant. It has a real anthemic vibe and lyrically it tells the story of being strong enough to move on in a situation; many people will relate. The Rising are an exciting group and with this release, they have set a real marker. LK


HD HAUSMANN
RECOGNISE FACES
Panda Cassettes

A tranquil wash colours the first single from HD Hausmann’s forthcoming second album. Liam Palmer’s vocals still retain hints of Tom Waits but, rather than stalk the listener, they add to the song’s feel of calm when buried a little deeper into the mix. DH


Words: Laura Klonowski, Duncan Haskell
