Dixie Chicks Announce New Album After 13-Year Hiatus
After a 13-year break from music, Dixie Chicks have officially confirmed that a new album is on its way. Band members Natalie Maines, Emily Robison and Martie Maguire have been teasing the release on their social media platforms the past few months, but announced on Instagram that the album is coming on June 21.
The group took a hiatus from music, but came back into the spotlight in 2016 when they were featured on Beyonce’s album Lemonade. The group sang on the country inspired track, Daddy Lessons. The band also went on an American tour in 2016 but hadn’t released any new music.
Producer, Jack Antonoff is well-known for his work on albums with Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey and Lorde, as well as his success with his own band, Bleachers. Antonoff is working on the new Dixie Chick album as well. Antonoff himself has posted photos working on the album from the studio over the past couple of months and was also seen in the video Maines posted to her Instagram announcing the album would be coming “someday.”
