Many A-list country artists have released new albums in 2016, but there’s been one particular artist that many have been waiting on to release her new album. That would be Miranda Lambert, who has always commanded attention with her music in recent years. But her new album has been anticipated more than usual after the high-profile divorce she had with fellow country artist Blake Shelton. Lambert has been promising that it will play a large part in the songwriting on the album. Well now we’re going to find out what she has to say, as Lambert posted a cryptic video on her Twitter feed this evening. She’s writing in a journal and at the end of the video it’s revealed (as you can see above), she’s written the title and release date of her new album. It’s called The Weight of These Wings and it’ll be released on November 18.
This announcement is in stark contrast to her previous album Platinum, which had tons of hoopla and hype surrounding it. It racked up critical acclaim and numerous awards from the CMAs and ACMs to the Grammys. Of course this was when the news of her divorce had yet to come out. Over the last year Lambert has kept a relatively low profile and the most news surrounding her was her dating Americana artist Anderson East. Only recently she has started to become more publicly visible, touring relentlessly around the country (although she’s currently on vocal rest). Earlier this year she also released the lead single of this album, “Vice.” It’s currently #18 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart and the only confirmed track so far on the album. The music video for it was released last week. When more details emerge regarding the album we will be sure to update this post. You can check out the video for the album announcement below:
