New live track from Gloriana, 'The Way It Goes,' streaming exclusively on EW's Music Mix!

I promised I’d always be honest with you, Mixers, and I don’t intend to quit now: Gloriana’s cloyingly perky first single, “Wild at Heart,” makes me want to stab Care Bears.

So how surprised was I by this laid-back live version of “The Way It Goes,” a track off their upcoming Aug. 4 debut? Very. Decided it would be wrong not to share it with you. Also because I suspect no matter how many Care Bears have to die, this photogenic country foursome is on its way to next-big-thingism.

Recorded while on tour with Taylor Swift — that’s gotta be a coveted opening slot — this live cut is one of three bonus tracks listeners can find on the deluxe version of the self-titled album, available for pre-order on iTunes this coming Tuesday.

Give a listen below, check out the official video after the jump, and let us know in the comments: Should Little Big Town start watching their backs?

    THANKS for posting this. I will admit to liking “Wild at Heart,” which I got as a free iTunes download a while back, but this live track is more my speed and is quite beautiful. Here’s hoping it can be downloaded separately on iTunes and isn’t album-only.

    Little Big Town is another level of talent. They are real, original, respectable and don’t get the credit they deserve. Anyone who likes this music needs to go buy “A Place To Land” and re-evaluate…

    Hey sunshine, what makes you think people who like Gloriana don’t know about or like Little Big Town? Believe it or not, some of us are capable of liking more than one thing. I can’t stand narrow-mindedness when it comes to music. You miss out on a lot that way, and that’s not how a real music fan should be. For the record, I like Little Big Town and never said I didn’t. But I like this too. So shoot me.

    I think this track is awesome, and I also think “Wild At Heart” is an amazing song. This band is going to be one of the great ones….mark my words. Go Gloriana!

  • Ron

    Three great country groups:
    Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum and now Gloriana. Very cool!

  • Kayla

    Gloriana is amazing. I definitely think they’re going to be BIG before we know it and country listeners aren’t going to know what hit ‘em!

    ..aint that the way it goes..always stumbling into something……

    I LOVE THIS BAND!! I loved wild at Heart and got it for free on iTunes, and saw them live on June 12. Meeting Gloriana made that night the best night of my life. They are great, positive, and talented role models. I can’t wait for August 4th; I will be right in line to buy their album. Give these rising stars a listen!

    Little Big Town definitely deserves more credit than they get. This is one of Gloriana’s stronger tracks but me I prefer LBT’s swampier sound. Gloriana’s a little pop for my taste but that’s why they’re connecting with the Taylor Swift crowd.

    Just becuase we like Gloriana doesen’t mean we don’t like Little Big Town, Lady A, or any country groups. I have both of Little Big Town’s cd’s and LAdy Antebellum’s cd and i love all of them. Can’t wait for Aug 4th!!!!
