And if you guessed Pharrell Williams, you’re right. The country music admirer is moving his way into the genre by collaborating with Little Big Town in a huge way. Meaning, he wrote and produced their entire new album, Wanderlust, which is due out on June 10th.
The album title alone is enough to make me lose my mind. So, let me just leave this here and tell you to tune into The Voice tonight to hear their new single One Of Those Days,”=with the song available on iTunes, Spotify and all digital service providers now. It’s different, it’s funky, and it’s something we have 100% never heard from the group before. I mean, it’s got summer basically written into the melody.
“Wanderlust is the result of an incredible friendship and chemistry we have with Pharrell Williams,” said Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild in a press release. ”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. Pharrell loves country music and is a huge fan of harmony. That shared passion and appreciation took us on a creative journey we had no idea would happen. The music feels like our worlds have collided in the best possible way – his infectious grooves paired with our layered vocals and harmonies. This music is meant to be danced to, sung along with and turned up loud. It’s uplifting and hopeful. We’ve been a band for a long time and have had the pleasure of collaborating with so many people, and it’s been a complete joy to make music with Pharrell!”
