With the release of their new song “Something Better” with EDM producer Audien, Lady Antebellum becomes the latest country band to join the Electronic Dance Music movement.
“I wanted to push boundaries,” the progressive house/trance artist told Entertainment Weekly. “The song lends itself perfectly to call and response vocals and anthemic harmonies. Lady Antebellum aren’t just some of the best voices in country music, but in overall music. It was a shot in the dark, but fortunately they felt as passionately about the song’s uplifting theme as I did. The result is simply my favorite thing I’ve ever done,” he says.
Clearly, Lady A’s Charles Kelley agrees. “The first time we heard the song we knew we wanted to be part of it. We were immediately drawn to its great melody and powerful lyric,” he recalls. “Working with someone like Audien puts us a little outside of our comfort zone, but as a band, we’ve always been up for trying different things.”
You might recall that the vocal trio did just that at last month’s CMT Music Awards, performing a mash-up of songs with EDM superstar Zedd. Earlier this week, Swedish DJ/producer Avicii also leaked a new track featuring Zac Brown Band.
