Little Big Town Tease ‘When Someone Stops Loving You’ From ‘The Breaker’ [Listen]
Little Big Town are just days away from releasing their new album, The Breaker, and they're teasing the release with another new track from the record titled "When Someone Stops Loving You."
The award-winning vocal quartet will release The Breaker on Friday (Feb. 24), and they've been offering fans a few tracks in advance previews via YouTube and streaming. In addition to the album's Taylor Swift-penned lead single, "Better Man," fans have already heard "We Went to the Beach" and "Happy People" from the project, which is shaping up to be one of the most musically diverse of the band's career.
"When Someone Stops Loving You" is another example of LBT drawing from the top songwriters in Nashville. Written by Hillary Lindsay, Chase McGill and Lori McKenna -- two-thirds of the writing team that created the award-winning smash "Girl Crush" -- the song changes it up by giving the lead vocal to Jimi Westbrook for a tale of love gone wrong.
Little Big Town Make the Best Songs of the Century List
“When someone stops loving you, it don't make the evening news,” the quartet sing. “It don't keep the sun from rising, the clock from winding, a heart from beating, even when you want it to.”
Musically the song is a fairly traditional throwback, with simple acoustic guitars underpinning a waltz that builds from a solo vocal into the group's big, signature harmonies.
Fans who pre-order The Breaker via iTunes receive instant downloads of “Better Man,” "We Went to the Beach," "Happy People" and "When Someone Stops Loving You."
