They’ve won a slew of accolades and statues over the past year — from Teen Choice Awards to Grammys — but resting on their collective rear ends clearly isn’t in the cards for Nashville trio Lady Antebellum. Head below to hear “Just A Kiss,” the first single from the group’s upcoming third album.
“We love writing songs from personal experience, and this is definitely one of those songs,” singer Hillary Scott, who shares vocals here with Charles Kelley, said. “There is so much excitement at the beginning of a new relationship … all the butterflies and that optimistic feeling that this person could be ‘the one.’”
Indeed, slow-burning mid-tempo jam “Just A Kiss,” which was made available on iTunes today, deftly captures that nervous energy that takes over your gut in the early stages of a budding romance.
“No, I don’t wanna say goodnight / I know it’s time to leave but you’ll be in my dreams tonight,” Hillary and Charles sing. Oh, just hook up already![wpaudio url="http://cdn.idolator.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/01-Just-a-Kiss.mp3" text="Lady Antebellum - Just A Kiss" dl="0"]
So far the band’s follow-up to last year’s multi-Platinum LP Need You Now has no title or release date.
What do you think of Lady A’s “Just A Kiss”? Is it another instant classic, a la their smash “Need You Now”?
