NEW MUSIC: MIRANDA LAMBERT | STRANGE
Miranda Lambert sings about being in perpetual motion on her new album "Palomino," set to drop on April 29. It’s the follow-up to her collaborative 2021 album "The Marfa Tapes" and her first album under her own name since 2019’s "Wildcard." The first new-new music she has shared is a song called "Strange," co-written with Natalie Hemby and Luke Dick. The song preaches the importance of staying optimistic during hard times. "The song ‘Strange’ came together in a really cool organic way,” she shares. "Natalie Hemby and Luke Dick and I were out writing at my farm, and Natalie had this really cool idea and melody and just the song title ‘Strange.’ We were talking about all the strangeness going on in the world at the time." "We did write it in 2020," Lambert explains. "We kind of wrote it towards addressing some heavy things, but mostly we want people to take away from this song to be lighter on their feet and take a breath and play a song and do a dance and maybe fly somewhere fun, just kind of escape from a reality that isn't too good.” Lambert echoes that statement as the star intends for the song to encourage fans too, “find your happy place in music and pick your guitars rolling away from the troubles." "Palamino" is Lambert’s first solo album since 2019’s "Wildcard," which produced the hit single “Bluebird,” among others. The singer teamed up with Jack Ingram and Jon Randall for 2021’s "The Marfa Tapes," nominated for Best Country Album at the 2022 Grammy Awards.
