Fourteen years since last releasing studio music and The Dixie Chicks returned to country music Wednesday with a new single and video, "Gaslighter."

"Gaslighter, denier. Doing anything to get your a-- farther," the Texas trio - featuring Martie Maguire, Emily Robison and Natalie Maines - sing on the new empowering tune takes liars to task.

The song pulls its title from "gaslighting," a means of psychologically manipulating someone into question their own sanity.

The song comes off an album of the same name, due out May 1. A-list studio hand Jack Antonoff co-produced "Gaslighter" with the band. Antonoff recently worked with Taylor Swift on "Lover" and Lana Del Rey on "Norman F------ Rockwell!"

Despite rabid popularity in the late 1990s and early 2000s, country radio shunned The Dixie Chicks in 2003 after Maines openly spoke out against then-U.S.President George W. Bush.

A 13-time Grammy Award-winning outfit, marquee Dixie Chicks songs include "Wide Open Spaces," "Goodbye Earl" and "Travelin' Soldier." The group last released an album, "Taking The Long Way," in 2006.

Taylor Swift featured The Dixie Chicks last year on "Soon You'll Get Better," an album cut off her new full-length, "Lover."
