The Dixie Chicks are back, ya'll!

The country music trio, who were blacklisted by networks and boycotted by fans after they criticised Republican President George W. Bush and the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, has released a powerful new single titled 'Gaslighter' following a 14-year break from producing music.

The three-minute, 45-second, harmony-filled track dropped last week and deals with a breakup.

The accompanying video - which stars frontwoman Natalie Maines, and sisters Emily Strayer and Martie Maguire - features an old-timey montage of propaganda clips.

The song is the title track of the group's upcoming new album of the same name, set for release on May 1.

Amid their time out of the music studio, the Dixie Chicks took a brief hiatus between 2010 and 2013 in order to spend time with their families before touring periodically over the past few years.
