New music is coming from Little Big Town! The four-member band just announced the release of “Hell Yeah,” out on Monday, April 11. The new tune, which marks the group’s first release in two years, since their “Wine, Beer, Whiskey” single came out in 2020, is from a forthcoming new album.
“Phillip [Sweet] and I wrote this with Tyler Hubbard and Corey Crowder,” Little Big Town’s Jimi Westbrook reveals. “I remember when Corey brought that hook in that day. He sang his idea and when he turned that phrase at the end of the chorus, we were all like ‘hell yeah!’ We always have a blast writing with those guys.”
LIttle Big Town will introduce “Hell Yeah” to the world when they perform it at the upcoming CMT Music Awards.
“This song is a classic breakup song, flipped upside down,” says Sweet. “It’s pure feel-good vibes. We are so excited to premiere it on the CMT Music Awards which has always been a home for us in releasing new music. Big thanks to iHeart for the radio World Premiere. Hell yeah!”
Little Big Town, which also includes Kimberly Schlapman and Karen Fairchild, also announced the news on social media.
