Editors' Notes The musical landscape has changed radically since the Dixie Chicks last released new music together more than a dozen years ago. But as Taylor Swift reminded us when she featured the Chicks on her album last year, their influence is everywhere. Generations of artists now look to them as symbols of the glory days of country music’s galvanising female hitmakers and as heroic examples of challenging the strictures of their industry. Despite the superstar country-pop string band’s extended quiet spell, there’s nothing the least bit tentative about “Gaslighter”, the title track and first single off one of the year’s most anticipated albums. The tune is a frisky takedown of a master manipulator, and a reminder of the Chicks’ flair for delivering biting sentiments in the most winning of ways. The familiar solidarity between Natalie Maines, Emily Robison and Martie Maguire comes through in the gutsy precision of their three-part harmonies, and they’ve put their acoustic sensibilities to tuneful use with their new collaborator, pop-savvy studio savant Jack Antonoff. “This was the first song we wrote with Jack Antonoff, and we knew right away this would be the sound of the album,” the Chicks report. Pre-add Gaslighter now. The entire album will arrive in your library when it’s released.
