Miranda Lambert’s New Album is Out
Miranda Lambert’s new album, The Weight of These Wings, arrives in stores today, Friday, November 18th. The 24-song project features two CDs, including her Top 10 hit “Vice,” and her brand new single, “We Should Be Friends.”
The album’s title was Miranda’s dad’s idea, something he came up with a long time ago.
“‘The Weight of These Wings’ is a line that my dad said to me. He’s a songwriter and he’s not written a song in probably nine years now but he mentioned the line to me one time at a show and it just stuck with me. It just felt really big and in some ways heavy and in some ways light, you know? It sort of makes you think about a lot of things, just that one sentence, and so we tried to write the song a few times and nothing really came of it and it just sort of going through this record process felt like it would tie everything together, you know? Being 24 songs I needed a title that would sort of round out the edges I guess and ‘The Weight of These Wings’ felt right.”
Miranda will support the album with her 2017 Highway Vagabond tour, which kicks off on January 26th in Evansville, Indiana. She will be joined by Old Dominion and Aubrie Sellers.
