sneak peak… Little Big Town “Tornado”

As Little Big Town tours the country this summer, they’ve begun to play some new music from their forthcoming album Tornado (street date 9.11.12) for the lucky fans in the audience. This incredible high-quality video that recently surfaced on YouTube is of a recent performance in Michigan of the title track, “Tornado.”

thought you’d change the weather
start a little storm, make a little rain
well I’m gonna do you one better
hide the sun until you pray
I’m a tornado
looking for a soul to take

WOW. Whistling, hand claps, a heartbeat bass drum, badass lyrics, a dramatic live performance with wind and smoke.. unreal. Karen Fairchild sings lead on this scorcher written by Natalie Hemby and Delta Maid. This song has replenished all of my faith in this band that I consider one of my all-time favorites. Their sound has taken a new and different turn, but it is always rooted in harmony and classic rock styling. I absolutely love this.
