Sugarland‘s new album Bigger will be released on June 8. In advance of its release that is less than four weeks away, the duo that recently reunited has shared its loving track, “Mother.”
At a recent showcase Sugarland did for media in Nashville, Jennifer Nettles explained that her life is significantly different since the last time she and Kristian Bush worked together, in large part due to having her son. Perhaps that is why the lead singer of the duo is able to relate with the poignant lyrics, that she and Bush penned, on so many levels.
In part, the song, that was appropriately released the week of Mother’s Day, goes:
She fixes all the broken things,
When you’re in love, she’s got a ring
To give to you she hopes you give away
She don’t care who you give it to
Where they’re from, if they pray like you
As long as they are good to you, that’s enough
First thing she taught you was love is love.
In a press release about the touching track on the Bigger album, Nettles shared:
We wanted to celebrate what we feel is so beautiful about mothers. What we shared with our own mothers and what we see is beautiful about that relationship and that kind of unconditional open-ended love.
Bush, who lost his mom years ago, explained:
This song is about a lot of things, our families, our lives, our country, but mostly, it is about my mom and what she was like. Now you see why it says what it says, especially in the lyric “As long as she’s alive you’re not alone.”
Sugarland’s new album, Bigger, is now available for pre-order and will be officially released for downloading and streaming on June 8.
