As Little Big Town prepare to release new album The Breaker, fans are clamoring for whatever sneak peeks they can get their hands on. The band just helped fill that void by sharing a brand new song called “When Someone Stops Loving You.”
The soulful ballad perfectly captures the foursome’s awesome harmonies and emotional delivery. As with many of their tunes, the writing credits carry some serious weight, too. “When Someone Stops Loving You” comes from heavyweight writers Hillary Lindsay, Chase McGill and Lori McKenna.
Hillary Lindsay and Lori McKenna were also two thirds of the team that brought forth Little Big Town’s smash single “Girl Crush.”
This time, the group captures the painful realities of how a breakup can feel so earth shattering and personal, yet go so unnoticed to the rest of the world. “When someone stops loving you, it don’t make the evening news,” the group sings. “It don’t keep the sun from rising, the clock from winding, a heart from beating, even when you want it to.”
And, similar to “Girl Crush,” “When Someone Stops Loving You” plods forward in waltz-like fashion. Easy plucked guitars dance around swelling keys. And of course, the harmonies.
If “When Someone Stops Loving You” is any indication, fans are in for one heck of an album. The group’s new record The Breaker releases Feb. 24.
First single “Better Man” quickly rose to the top of the charts. And though “When Someone Stops Loving You” doesn’t look like the next single, it easily could be.
This marks the fourth song the band shared ahead of the release, along with the nostalgic “We Went To The Beach” and “Happy People.”
