Miranda Lambert is bringing her latest single, “Bluebird,” to life with the release of a stunning new music video to accompany the song.

Directed by Lambert’s longtime collaborator Trey Fanjoy, the clip parallels Lambert and an actual bluebird. The bluebird is in a cage staring out a window, while Lambert is seen in a life-size cage dressed in a feathery blue gown adorned with sequins and shiny tights. As Lambert sings the song, it’s revealed that she is performing for a live audience watching on from a downtown barroom.  At the end of the clip, the bluebird flies out of the window, while Lambert exits the cage and walks into what appears to be an alleyway, likely meant to signify the two finding their freedom.

“And if the house just keeps on winning/ I got a wildcard up my sleeve/ And if love keeps giving me lemons/ I’ll just mix ’em in my drink/ And if the whole wide world stops singing/ And all the stars go dark/ I’ll keep a light on in my soul/ Keep a bluebird in my heart,” the Texas native sings throughout the chorus.

Lambert co-wrote the song with Natalie Hemby and Luke Dick.

“I love ‘Bluebird.’ It’s a song like I’ve never written before and I’m so proud to be a part of it,” the superstar shared in a statement. “Since I wrote it, I’ve been seeing bluebirds everywhere. The bluebirds had always been there – I live on a farm – but I never saw them like I see them now. It reminds me to open my eyes to what’s around me. Now, seeing a bluebird sitting on a branch means so much more to me. I see a little piece of hope there, sitting with wings, and it’s a reminder. I think this is one of those songs where every person takes what they need to from it.”

“Bluebird” is the second radio single from Lambert‘s latest album, Wildcard.
