AceShowbiz - Dixie Chicks has hyped up their comeback with a teaser. Months after revealing that their first studio album in fourteen years will be called "Gaslighter", the "Not Ready to Make Nice" hitmakers gave fans a taste of their new music as frontwoman Natalie Maines put out a clip of what seems to be the music video for its title track.
Making use of her own Instagram account on Sunday, February 16, Maines put out a behind-the-scene video that captured a topless male contortionist dancing along to what sounds like the album's title track. In the caption of the post, the 45-year-old singer wrote, "I'm gonna get in trouble for this, but that's why you love me."
"Gaslighter, you liar/ You had to start a fire, had to start a fire/ Couldn't take yourself on a road a little higher/ Had to burn it up, had to tear it down/ Tried to say I'm crazy/ Babe, you know I'm not crazy/ But you gaslighted/ You're a la-la-la-liar ...," Maines' singing could be heard in the background of the video.
Maines' original post was removed by Monday morning, but she uploaded a screenshot of the video hours later. Along with it, she wrote in the accompanying caption, "Ha! Like it never happened," in addition to "gaslighter" and "soon" hashtags. Minutes later, she re-uploaded the video with a teasing caption that read, "Just kidding!"
Dixie Chicks' official Instagram account, in the meantime, put out two photos with captions "#gaslighter" and "#dcx2020". Both photos saw Maines along with bandmates Martie Erwin Maguire and Emily Erwin Robison sipping wine using striped straws. One captured them in white clothing, while the other one presented them in fiercer dark outfits.
The talks about Dixie Chicks' comeback have been buzzing since June 2019. In September the same year, Maines got into the details of their upcoming records during an appearance on the "Spiritualgasm" podcast.
Among the topic Maines openly discussed was the inspiration for the album. "Songwriting is really hard for me, and I think for many years, I didn't want to analyze my life or my relationship. I was just in it and dedicated and devoted, and if I had started writing songs about it," she spilled. "I don't want to say I was in a 'survival mode,' but I was just not ready to open up like that."
