EXCLUSIVE: Lady Antebellum Describes Studio Process of ‘Think About You’
Lady Antebellum pulled from a range of heart-based emotions for each of the tracks on their recent album, and “Think About You” defines the sass in subtlety over a lost relationship long gone by.
Written by Hillary Scott, Dave Haywood and a couple of their Nashville songwriting colleagues, Sara Haze and Will Weatherly, they made this track specifically from the girl’s point of view to enhance the emotional vulnerability without making the moving on process a big deal. Brushing the breakup off like nobody’s watching, the girl is able to get up and get over it even if she still cares secretly deep down inside.
“I love this song so much. I think the lyric—they’re so tongue-in-cheek. It’s very much a girl song. You know, that guy brings up an old memory, you’re like, ‘I don’t know what you’re talking about,’ when you actually remember every single detail. But it’s your way of being strong in the moment of like, ‘I don’t want him to think I just think about him all the time anymore,’” Scott of the group explained.
Although Charles Kelley didn’t throw his hat into the songwriting ring for this track, he expressed his big love toward the “earworm” tune that he expects to blow up the country charts one day if they decide to release it out to radio.
Grooving along like any other Lady A track, “Think About You” mirrors the progressive sound they strived for on this project and yet still maintained that classic, carefree vibe that the country trio is known for on their past catalogue hits.
“Think About You,” which is featured on Lady Antebellum’s latest record, Heart Break, is available everywhere now.
