Pharrell Williams Produces Little Big Town's New Album 'Wanderlust'
While gearing up for The Voice Season 2 finale, coach Pharrell Williams produced the next album for country quartet Grammy-winning group Little Big Town. The group, consisting of Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet and Jimi Westbrook, will feature eight songs on their seventh studio album which will be released on June 10 by Capitol Records Nashville, Ottawa Citizen reported.
They will also debut their newly released song "One of Those Days" on NBC's The Voice finale. The song was released digitally Tuesday prior to their TV appearance and is available on different digital outlets.
"Wanderlust is the result of an incredible friendship and chemistry we have with Pharrell Williams," Fairchild said in a press statement, according to Rolling Stone. She added that the "Happy" singer started writing sessions with them a few months ago and they were able to make several songs.
She also said that they were nervous and wanted to come up with something fantastic during their first writing dates with Williams. With the songs that they wrote, Fairchild said that they hope to "bring a lot of smiles and dancing to people.”
"We had a great time working together because we all love harmonies and that’s a really fun way to make a record," said Williams. "A lot of the songs were based on what the group were going through at the time and creating good feelings around those experiences."
Wanderlust is a follow-up to the group's chart-topping "Day Drinking." They are currently joining Luke Bryan for his Kill the Lights Tour and will have upcoming shows at Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Daytona Beach, Florida this Memorial Day weekend.
Apart from the quartet, Williams also recently collaborated with the Band Perry, another country music group which will soon be releasing their new album under Interscope Records.
