Fans hoping to get their hands on a new album from Miranda Lambert will soon have their wish.
In a recent interview with Billboard, the superstar revealed that the album is complete and that it will include her latest single, ‘If I Was A Cowboy.”
“We are finished and now we’re just tying the bows on all that stuff. I really got to hone in on this project because we wrote most of it in 2020,” she told the publication, also revealing that the majority of the songs were written at her Tennessee farm. “There are very few writers on this project. ‘Cowboy’ is the first peek of that. I think that was the last one I wrote for this project and the first one we released. [The album] has a vibe and it’s different than I’ve ever done, but it’s obviously still me. When I sing, it’s straight-up country, no matter which way I twist it. But yeah, it’s got a bit of a thing to it, that’s all I’ll say.”
The yet-to-be-named project will serve as the follow-up to the Texas native’s 2021 release, The Marfa Tapes, with Jon Randall and Jack Ingram. As far as solo projects go, the new album follows 2019’s Wildcard.
Lambert will soon hit the road on The Bandwagon Tour with Little Big Town. After collaborating with the quartet on her 2015 single, “Smoking’ and Drinkin’, Lambert teased that they just might have to team up once again.
“I was thinking about another version of some of the songs [on the album], because I’ve turned it into the label already,” Lambert said. “But I’m kind of on this vibe of whatever comes along, let’s try it. Since I’m going out on The Bandwagon Tour with Little Big Town, I’m hoping there may be a crossover at some point of getting them on a song or two.”
