Billboard.com shares the exclusive premiere of The Band Perry’s second single “Mother Like Mine” off their upcoming “Pioneer” project.
The Band Perry sat down and discussed the making of their upcoming sophomore album “Pioneer” with Billboard Magazine. The album is available April 2, 2013 and the band graces the cover of Billboard’s March 23rd issue.
“We have worked really hard on ‘Pioneer,'” Kimberly says. “We’re kind of excited to just hit the reset button. Even at our shows the past two and a half years, we’ve been playing the same eleven songs, so we’re excited to put out into the world all these things that we’ve been thinking, and everything we’ve been living out over the past couple of years, which is exactly what the tracks on Pioneer talk about.”
There’s no doubt this trio has worked very hard. Their self-titled debut album (2010) has sold 1.5 million copies and spawned the third-best-selling country digital single of all time, “If I Die Young,” which has tallied 4.5 million sold. The album produced two country No. 1s (“If I Die Young,” “All Your Life”), a top five (“You Lie”) and a top 10 (“Postcard From Paris”).
And “Pioneer’s” lead single “Better Dig Two” is the band’s fastest-rising song, their third #1 hit and has been RIAA Certified Platinum.
And the trio’s upcoming song “Mother Like Mine” can be heard EXCLUSIVELY at BILLBOARD.COM.
“Mother Like Mine,” which was inspired by the sibling group’s mom, lead singer Kimberly Perry says, “We were relaxing, and going through some song ideas. Neil had this one line written on his phone, ‘If the world had a mother like mine.’ We all started to think about what the world would look like if our mother had raised it the way she raised us. The opening line of the chorus says ‘The wars would all be over, because she’d raise us all as friends.’ Our mother is our personal hero. We are her labor of love. It’s our honor to our mother on ‘Pioneer.”
