2020 album also available on CD.
Gaslighter is the brilliant new album from the Dixie Chicks (the fifth studio album to be released by the band). After a long hiatus the country pop trio are back with their first new album since 2006’s ‘Taking The Long Way’ which won five Grammy Awards including “Album Of The Year,” “Record Of the Year” and “Song Of The Year.”
Band member Natalie Maines explained, the album was inspired by her divorce from actor Adrian Pasdar. “When I started getting a divorce, I had a lot to say, so that sparked me being ready. Songwriting is really hard for me, and for many years I didn’t want to analyze life or my relationship. I was just in it, and dedicated and devoted, and if I had started writing songs about it, that might not have been good. I was just in a … I don’t want to say ‘survival mode,’ but I was just not ready to open up. And then when my relationship fell apart, I had a lot to say.”
The new album will also coincide with a 2020 tour, and marks the trio’s final album under contract with Sony. “We thought we would do a covers album, just do it real easy, turn it in and get the money, and be free agents. And then my relationship fell apart, and I had a lot to say. So Gaslighter is not a covers album. Our last album was the most personal and autobiographical we’d ever been, and this one is ten times that.”
Gaslighter is produced by Jack Antonoff with the Dixie Chicks. Superstars, renegades, innovators, heroes, villains, and moms, the Dixie Chicks have grown from a band into a cultural phenomenon. Since the release of their debut album ‘Wide Open Spaces’ in 1998, the Dixie Chicks’ music has stirred emotions in fans across the world, making them one of the biggest and most influential bands of our time.
