[email protected] Announces New Album “Pain Killer” (See the Track List!)

Little Big Town has been hard at work prepping for the release of its sixth studio album. The fantastic foursome took to social media to reveal details about their forthcoming release, finally revealing that the album, entitled Pain Killer, will be released on October 21st. They Jay Joyce-produced album will feature the summer single “Day Drinking,” as well as eight tracks co-written by members of the band.

“Sometimes you don’t know what’s going to happen in the studio. You just have to dive in head first and work hard to do something unique,” said Karen Fairchild. “We’re always striving and pushing ourselves to go somewhere new. Pain Killer is a new place for sure.”

For the band, the album’s title came very naturally. “We knew the record was going to be called Pain Killer way on into the process because we love that song,” says Fairchild to Rolling Stone Country. “That song is really kind of tongue-in-cheek — ‘be the person that numbs my pain.’ We started talking about tying that thread through the whole record, to ease your pain. Don’t we want the whole record to do that for people, anyway? Whether it’s a sad moment, or a song that’s more thoughtful and has a lot more substance in the lyric, we want music to take us away. Pain Killer is the common thread through all the songs.”

Speaking to Rolling Stone Country, Jimi Westbrook shares further details of the album. “‘Save Your Sin’ will surprise people because you’ve never heard Kimberly sing like this before,” he explains. “First of all, the girl can sing to the rafters, it’s unbelievable. She’s putting some growl and gravel on it in that upper range.”

The singers, who have been a band for nearly 15 years, are not the only ones excited for the release. “Individually, they are four of the best singers in the world,” said Mike Dungan, Chairman/CEO of Universal Music Group Nashville. “Together, they are awe-inspiring. As a band, they are forever focused on taking it to the next level. The result is Pain Killer…simply the best one yet.”
