Little Big Town released the latest song on their highly-anticipated 16-track project, holding out for a “better love next time” after having bad luck with someone else: “So, my heart bit the dust/ So, what/ It is what it is, and it ain’t what it wasn’t/ Oh, well/ What the hell/ Bad luck this time/ Better love next time.”

“Better Love” debuted on Friday (August 12), following the sentimental “Rich Man” (which bandmate Jimi Westbrook has been developing for more than a decade), “All Summer” and “Hell Yeah.” The band’s 10th studio album, Mr. Sun, is set to release on September 16. Little Big Town — made up of Westbrook, Karen FairchildKimberly Schlapman and Phillip Sweet — created the record during an “unprecedented period,” and now, there’s a “special feeling” to it,” Sweet previously said. “Life is short; we are here to live it with the ones around us, loving them and ourselves the best we can. All the while, thankful for another turn around the sun.”
