Lady Antebellum wants to add a little something extra to their latest album, Golden.
Sales have been solid, but not where their last few records have been.
They say in the music business that a hit can fix anything. I don’t think there is a problem with Lady A right now, but everybody could always use another hit.
I think they’ve found one with this new song. It’s going to be on a deluxe version of Golden coming out soon.
Compass – Lady Antebellum
Lady Antebellum has been on the charts for about five or six years now. They came out with a really unique sound back then. I would say they had the pop/folk feel before all the Mumford and Sons and other bands came along a few years later.
That’s the sound I hear even more on Compass. It has a really cool folk sound to it. I think people are really digging this sound right now and that’s one of the reasons this song should be a success. I think Lady A is going to get some good coverage with this one.
The story in the song is also good. It’s a feel good love song about finding that one person that matters most in your life. You find them and no matter where you go your compass will always point back to them.
Great song from a great band.
