After a decade-plus away from the spotlight, The Chicks are very much back.
The country trio, formerly the Dixie Chicks, are rejuvenated under their new, tighter name and with their first album in 14 years Gaslight, which dropped at midnight.
Their fifth studio set, Gaslighter features the previously-released tracks “Juliana Calm Down,” “March March,” “Sleep At Night” and the album’s title track.
The Chicks — Martie Maguire, Natalie Maines and Emily Strayer — dropped Dixie from their name last month, explaining at the time: “We want to meet this moment”.
Across their career to date, they’ve collected 13 Grammy Awards, six Billboard Music Awards, four American Music Awards and millions of fans around the globe.
Gaslighter is a long time coming. The new LP was due for release in May, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic was pushed back to July 17. It’s the followup to 2006’s Taking the Long Way.
