After debuting several new tracks from her highly anticipated new album over the course of the past few weeks, Miranda Lambert has finally revealed more information about her seventh studio release.
Entitled Wildcard, Lambert’s new album will arrive November 1 via Vanner Records/RCA Records Nashville.
The project marks her departure from her longtime producer and finds her working with producer Jay Joyce for the first time ever.
“When people listen to this record, I want them to know that I see them and hear them,” Lambert shared in a release. “I feel you, because I’m just a girl from East Texas, writing about all the things that go on in my world and in the worlds of people around me. I want people to get along, you know, just be who you are, own it and move on from the moments you couldn’t live in.”
According to a press release, Wildcard will feature many different sounds, “from fraught, taut rock & roll to gentle folk, classic Wurlitzer country and a bit of funky gospel.”
Along with the album announcement, Lambert also released “Bluebird,” another new song off the album. The Texas native co-wrote the song with Luke Dick and Natalie Hemby. Wildcard will also feature previously released songs “Locomotive,” “Mess With My Head” and her latest single, “It All Comes Out In The Wash.” See the complete track list below.
