Country music trio Lady Antebellum have revealed some more details for their forthcoming studio album, which will be entitled "Heart Break" and is set to hit stores on June 9th.

The group has revealed the track details for the new album, which they recorded with producer busbee. Dave Haywood reflects on that experience "Being together every day, living in a house together, that was the special ingredient this time. And then in the studio, busbee added a whole new layer. He's such an integral part of this new chapter for us."

Hillary Scott adds, "When we started working on this record, the goal was to give ourselves some space from the day to day. Surrounding ourselves in a new environment with sunny beaches and warm weather really helped free our minds to focus solely on our art." Read more here.

Selena Gomez Covers 80s Track For 'Thirteen Reasons Why'

(Radio.com) Selena Gomez has an executive producer credit on the new Netflix series Thirteen Reasons Why, a high school murder mystery that swirls around social media. Though Gomez doesn't act on the show, she lent her music stardom to the series' soundtrack -- she covered "Only You" by the short-lived (but iconic) '80s synth-pop band Yaz.

Alison Moyet and Vince Clark (of Erasure and Depeche Mode) formed Yaz in 1981 and released Upstairs at Eric's to commercial and critical acclaim. They disbanded before You and Me Both was released "posthumously" in 1983.

Gomez's take on "Only You" strips the vibrant pangs of isolation in favor of a more moody, sedate arrangement. Listen to her cover for Thirteen Reasons Why followed by Yaz's original here.

Spice Girl Victoria Beckham Films 'Carpool Karaoke' Segment

(Radio.com) Last year, Victoria Beckham and Mel C. said "thanks but no thanks" to the Spice Girls reunion featuring Mel B., Geri Halliwell and Emma Bunton. And while Posh Spice has tabled her music career to earn acclaim as a fashion designer, she teased an upcoming Carpool Karaoke appearance with James Corden.

Beckham captured an Instagram story tagged "top secret filming" and let the cat out of the bag when she announced "We're here about to film Carpool Karaoke -- here's James," as Corden climbed into the driver's seat.

Beckham also shared a clip from James Corden's soundstage, so her appearance on The Late Late Show may come very soon. The teasers leave some big lingering questions: What will Posh sing? Beckham and Mel C. reportedly blocked the members of GEM from mining the old catalog in the Spice Girls' latest, incomplete iteration, reported NME.

Is she alone? Maybe Mel C. will make an appearance of solidarity with her and maybe -- if we can dream -- there were four other British superstars inside that Range Rover. We'll know very soon. Until then, enjoy these clips from Beckham's Instagram story here.

Luke Bryan Talks 'To The Moon and Back' Ahead Of ACMs

(Radio.com) "Behind the Song" gives fans an inside look into some of the best songs by this year's ACM Awards nominees. Here, Luke Bryan, who is nominated for Entertainer of the Year, talks about "To the Moon and Back," from his 2015 album, 'Kill the Lights.'

If you're a guy who is, perhaps, uncomfortable talking about feelings, how do you tell the woman that you love how you feel? A good song is always helpful. And that's one of the great things about Luke Bryan's "To the Moon and Back," written by Tom Douglas, Hillary Lindsey and Tony Lane.

'The second I heard it I told myself, 'Well, this is a really manly, masculine way to tell your wife and tell people you love them. It's not cheesy, it's like a wedding song,'" Luke Bryan recalls. "Two years ago if you'd have told me I'd be sitting here going, 'Well, this song could be a big wedding song for a lot of people,' I would've looked at you like you had four heads." He says he just wasn't "that guy" back then.

Bryan compares the song to one of his earlier classics, which also expresses difficult emotions: "'Drink a Beer' was a sad song for me," he says. "It was a sad song, but it was tough, and it said what I wanted to say in the right way, and so does 'To the Moon and Back.' It's perfectly done, and I think a man's man could put that song in and go, 'Baby, this is a song that I want you to hear, and it makes me think about us,' and I think that's the cool thing about 'To the Moon and Back.'"
