With the release of Wanderlust in June, Little Big Town formed a cross-genre alliance with producer Pharrell Williams and ventured off of the country path to explore the sounds of psychedelic pop and electronic music.
After the short detour, Little Big Town is back to their harmonic roots in full force with their new single, “Better Man,”—a song written by Taylor Swift as revealed in November—the first song from their forthcoming album.
The warm, simplistic harmony features Karen Fairchild taking the lead—just like she did on “Girl Crush”—as she explores moving forward after suffering heartbreak. The new tune is totally in LBT’s wheelhouse and sounds like something that would have fit seamlessly on their 2014 album, Pain Killer.
