Little Big Town is back! The Grammy-winning band just announced plans for a new single, album and tour.
Nightfall, LBT’s much-anticipated new studio album, will arrive on January 17, 2020.
“Nightfall is our ninth studio album, and we poured our hearts into this project and we are so proud of it,” LBT’s Phillip Sweet shares. “We feel like it makes a beautiful statement about where we are right now as a band and how much we love making music together, and also that the album takes you on a journey. It will transport you, hopefully, into a beautiful place, because we love it and we’re very proud of it.”
The album will be released one day after Little Big Town headlines the historic Carnegie Hall in New York City on January 16, 2020, marking the first mainstream country performance featured at the iconic venue since Alan Jackson in 2013.
Following their history-making concert at Carnegie Hall, Little Big Town will bring their live show to various theaters across the country with the 30+ date Nightfall Tour, which will continue through May 2, 2020.
Along with the announcement of the album and tour, Little Big Town also released their brand new single, “Over Drinking.” Written by Jesse Frasure, Cary Barlowe, Hillary Lindsey, Ashley Gorley and Steph Jones, the track marks the first official single from Nightfall. It’s available everywhere now.
