Lady Antebellum have released their latest single, "Long Stretch of Love."

The song is the first track on the band's most recent album, 747which was released last fall, and the tune adds a more roots-inspired sound to the album with the help of an unusual instrument.

"What really makes this song special and different to me is how we used an uncommon instrument called a woodrow, which brings an Appalachian feel into this high-energy track," says 747 producer Nathan Chapman in a press release. "That unique sound combined with their vocals -- which may be the most powerful Lady A has ever sounded -- it just leaves the listener breathless."

The trio penned the song with Josh Kear, who also worked on their mega-hit "Need You Now."

""Long Stretch of Love" sounds like we feel right now ... it's bold, upbeat and fresh," Hillary Scott says. "It's the perfect song to go into a new tour with ... in fact, we should kick our set off with it every night!"

Lady A are currently overseas on their Wheels Up 2015 Tour. The North American leg of the tour, which features appearances by Hunter Hayes and Sam Hunt, kicks off May 1 in Lubbock, Texas. A list of upcoming tour stops can be found at

The trio is also nominated for Vocal Group of the Year at the 2015 ACM Awards, which are set to take place on April 19.

"Long Stretch of Love" and 747 are available for download via Amazon and iTunes.
