Sugarland announced their highly anticipated sixth studio album, titled BIGGER, that will be released on June 8. Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush co-wrote nearly all of the songs on the album with the exception of one -“Babe” which was written by Taylor Swift and Pat Monahan. Swift even sings backup on the song.

So for now, Swift is back on country music radio. In 2017, she wrote Little Big Town’s “Better Man” which landed the group CMA “Song of the Year.”

Take a listen to the lyric video below.

After taking a hiatus to pursue a series of high profile solo projects, BIGGER is the duo’s first new music in seven years and the first project under their new joint venture with Big Machine Records and UMG Nashville.

The bold graphics of the recently unveiled album cover conjure up images of a circus tent, representative of both that fun side and some of the more enigmatic content on the project, which was written over and influenced by the course of the past six months. “This album has a whole bunch of mystery,” says Kristian, who has been enjoying peeling back the layers of the production and the nuanced songwriting. “I’m listening to it every two days just to see what’s in it. I have entire pints of blood in that thing, but I still don’t know where it all came from, and I love that.”

The duo will head on the “STILL THE SAME 2018 TOUR” this spring and summer.  For tickets and a full list of dates, please visit HERE.
