In addition to the news of LBT’s residency, the band is also set to release their seventh studio album, The Breaker, on February 24. Of their new album Karen Fairchild shares, “The Breaker is about letting go of things that break you, it’s about the new ground you try and break as a human being and as a musician. Sometimes you’re the one that’s broken and sometimes you’re the breaker. It’s a sentimental record because we’re feeling super grateful for our friends and family and the chance to share the next chapter.”
The album will feature lead single “Better Man” which it was revealed today that it was written by Taylor Swift. The video for the hit single, directed by Becky Fluke and Reid Long, made its world premiere today as well.
