Is it a quarter after one? Are you a little drunk? Good! You’re primed and ready for Lady Antebellum‘s new single, “Downtown,” which may be a little less emotional than their crossover smash “Need You Now” but sounds no less appealing: A jangly, jaunty little slice of country-pop with yowling guitars.

The lyric video is bright and slick — more a night out in Nashville than sitting on the porch with a banjo — and should appease fans until the song hits digital retailers on February 5. Watch the lyric video up top, and head down below to see their performance of the new track on the January 28 episode of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
