Little Big Town has recruited acclaimed producer and artist Pharrell for their latest project, which combines country music with experimental hip-hop beats.
Wanderlust, set for release on June 10, features eight new tracks that were created during collaborative writing sessions set over the past few months.
“Wanderlust is the result of an incredible friendship and chemistry we have with Pharrell Williams,” Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild said in a statement. ”What started out as one writing session a few months ago turned into multiple writing sessions, as well as back and forth trips from Nashville to Los Angeles. When the songs started coming together, we realized it was too special to not share with our fans.”
The group will perform their brand new single, “One of Those Days,” on NBC’s The Voice later today, May 24. The track was co-written by Pharrell, who is also a celebrity judge on the singing competition.
Fairchild says that the band is excited to share the unique new sound that they’ve developed together.
” The music feels like our worlds have collided in the best possible way—his infectious grooves paired with our layered vocals and harmonies,” she explains. “This music is meant to be danced to, sung along with and turned up loud. It’s uplifting and hopeful.”
