Lady A has announced details behind their upcoming What A Song Can Do (Chapter One) collection, set to be released June 25. The group spent last year in rediscovery mode while recommitting themselves to their original intention, the trio emerged with a new, refined vision.
The seven-track ensemble, produced by Dann Huff and with each track penned by at least one member, reinvigorates their signature rich vocal harmony, vivid emotional writing, and a smooth fusion of Country, rock, and pop. The new music is not dedicated to the struggles of 2020, but it was born alongside them and adds a layer of uplifting depth to Lady A’s catalog. What A Song Can Do (Chapter One) will be available for pre-order on June 11 here alongside its gentle and wise new track “Things He Handed Down” here.
“There’s an interdependence that we have with each other, and music is at the center of that to me,” Hillary Scott said. “We are all living in the now together…we’re all a work in progress, and that is what we wanted to share with these songs on the first chapter.”
With a renewed appreciation for their music and the friendship that made it possible, Lady A offers an honest self-examination while striving to be present and preaching empowered affirmation, all with the sonic blend they’re best known for. Together, they explore musically through a pure-Country lens of love, loss, and laughter. The title track for What A Song Can Do (Chapter One) opens the trio’s hearts to a fresh start, while songs like “Talk of This Town” and “Fire” use third-degree romantic burns as a metaphor for adversity. “Worship What I Hate” takes a brutally honest look at who we become if we’re not paying attention and “Chance of Rain” reminds us not to play it safe in matters of life and love. The gentle “Things He Handed Down” dusts off some heirloom wisdom, questioning how it’s put to use.
