Lady Antebellum released their new song Pictures last week - and now they've put out a live performance of the tune.

Pictures is the second song to be released from the band’s forthcoming album for Big Machine Records. It was preceded by What If I Never Get Over You, which has already been streamed more than 45 million times.

Written by Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott, Sarah Buxton and Corey Crowder, Pictures recalls less-than-picture-worthy memories while looking back on a relationship.

Says the band's Hillary Scott: "We live in a world right now, especially with social media, where everyone’s lives can look happy and pretty.

"We wrote this song to reflect on the reality that things are more complex than that. As good as something might look in brief moments, there are so many layers to who people really are and what’s really going on.

"I love the juxtaposition of how this song’s lyrics dig in while feeling laid-back and groovy."

Lady Antebellum are no strangers to Ireland, and most recently played Dublin's 3Arena last March, at the hugely successful Country to Country music festival.

C2C will be back in Dublin next year from March 13-15.
