Lady Antebellum is gearing up for the high skies.

The country trio announced today (July 18) that their fifth studio album is titled 747, and that it will touch down on Sept. 30.

“We unanimously knew that our album title had to be 747,” said Lady A’s Hillary Scott in a press release. “The track itself has this pushing, driving spirit about it that sums up our attitude right now. We are pushing ourselves as a band and as songwriters…taking ourselves out of our comfort zone and not taking ourselves too seriously. There’s an urgency and an energy to it that we’ve never released before.”

Bandmate Charles Kelley said how anxious the band is to get their new music out.

“To get the reaction we’ve gotten from ‘Bartender’ has only made us more fired up about the rest of these songs,” he said.

The 11-song album was written by the band as well as several new songwriters Lady A have never worked with before. Bandmate Dave Haywood said that it was these new songwriters that helped change the band’s approach and challenge them to try new things.
