The Band Perry Reveal More Collaborators for Upcoming Album
“We’re being really crazy about the different collaborations that we’re diving into,” Kimberly Perry tells CMT After Midnite. “We got to hang out with Pharrell a couple weeks ago. He’s, like, a huge country music fan, and he also really loves what we do with harmony. One thing that we worked on with him was this song where all three of us sing different interwoven vocals on the verse and on the chorus.”
But Williams, who is once again rubbing elbows with country star Blake Shelton on The Voice, is just one of a few guest artists who are lending their skills to TBP’s upcoming project. DJ and rapper Diplo confirmed via Twitter that he collaborated with the Band Perry as well.

The family trio, which also includes brothers Neil and Reid Perry, have hinted in the past that they are going to make changes for their latest set of tunes, including collaborating with the writer of Miranda Lambert‘s hit single “Little Red Wagon.”
“For this new record we’re actually, we’re mixing it up,” Kimberly Perry reveals. “We have a lot of interesting things happening. You know, the co-writes are one thing we’ve gotten really excited about as well. There’s a new girl that’s been here in Nashville writing, her name is Audra Mae, she’s a very spirited young lady. So we’ve just made a lot of new writing friendships and we can’t wait for you guys to hear it.”
The Band Perry have had a promising year so far. In February, they won a Grammy for Best Country Duo/Group Performance, for “Gentle on My Mind,” from Glen Campbell‘s I’ll Be Me soundtrack, and they are also nominated for an ACM Award, for Vocal Group of the Year.
