While people are buzzing about Sugarland’s unexpected collaboration with Taylor Swift on their upcoming album, Bigger, the duo released the title track of the record.

The song perfectly sets the stage for the new album (to be released on June 8th) in which Sugarland members Kristian Bush and Jennifer Nettles worked together seemlessly after a 5 year break. The upbeat nature of the song “Bigger” reflects Nettles’ sentiment about the whole record:  “Our hopefulness and our sparkiness and our joy is one of the things I think we do uniquely well, especially in the country format. We offer that in a unique way.”

The lyrics to “Bigger” encourage the listener to rise above the negativity swirling around the world. Nettles sings that no matter how hard it may seem to stay positive at times, “We’re gonna be bigger.”

Sugarland will embark on their Still the Same Tour starting on May 4th, over a month ahead of their album’s release. But for now, fans can enjoy “Bigger” and the first track released from the record, “Still the Same.”

“Bigger” Lyrics:

People walking around like the world’s about to end
And if you’re asking me
My mind would agree
These days we all feel small, my friend

It’s getting harder and harder to hold our heads up high
Baby let’s circle the wagons
Show all the dragons they don’t own the sky
We know how to fly

Gravity can’t hold us down
We’re moving at the speed of sound
Past the point from here on out
There’s no going back

‘Cause we were born for better days
We’ll find a way yeah
We’re gonna be bigger

Don’t give up you’re more than enough
Believe me love, yeah, you’re gonna be bigger

Lookin’ at everybody else
And you hate yourself
And it hurts your heart
Yeah it’s easy to let it
Make you forget it
You are perfect the way you are

Gravity can’t hold you down
You’re moving at the speed of sound
Past the point from here on out
There’s no going back

‘Cause we were born for better days
We’ll find a way yeah
We’re gonna be bigger

Don’t give up you’re more than enough
Believe me love yeah you’re gonna be bigger

If they’re uninvited don’t shut your mouth don’t keep quiet
Just let ‘em know that they can’t try it
That this body’s your temple
And they can’t buy it cause nobody’s money no ‘mount of power no kind of bait
Can make you take it and hate yourself for what they did you won’t forget you can forgive they think they’re big
But you’re bigger

‘Cause we were born for better days
We’ll find a way yeah
We’re gonna be bigger

Don’t give up you’re more than enough (gonna be gonna be)
Believe me love yeah you’re gonna be bigger

‘Cause we were born for better days
We’ll find (gonna be gonna be) a way yeah
We’re gonna be bigger

Don’t give up you’re more than enough
Believe me love yeah you’re gonna be bigger

Yeah you’re gonna be bigger (oooooh)
