The Dixie Chicks upcoming eighth studio album, Gaslighter — which was slated to drop on May 1 — has been postponed. No new release date has been announced.

The Dixie Chicks most recent album was 2006’s Taking the Long Way, which earned the trio three Grammy Awards. Natalie Maines, Emily Robison and Martie Maguire of the Dixie Chicks dropped their first single in 13 years with the release of “Gaslighter” on March 4. The new tune, which was co-penned and co-produced by the Dixie Chicks and Jack Antonoff, debuted at No. 36 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, marking the highest debut on the chart for the Dixie Chicks since their cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide” in September 2002, which debuted at No. 32.
