– Little Big Town will release its fifth studio album, "Tornado," on Sept. 11.
The album was recorded in Nashville with producer Jay Joyce (Wallflowers/Eric Church/Cage The Elephant) and features hit single Pontoon among the 11 songs.
"I am so excited for people to hear this new record," said Jimi Westbrook. "We worked with Jay Joyce, and he really pushed us to be in the moment. There was such an amazing energy between all of us in the studio, and I think you can feel it."
