Miranda Lambert on New Music: ‘No One is More Excited Than Me’
Miranda Lambert is working on new music, and there's no doubt fans will be excited. But she may be the most excited of us all.
"I've really worked since last summer just writing and recording, so no one is more excited than me to have the next thing come through and show off what I've been doing," she told reporters on the opening night of the 2016 CMA Music Festival (quote via Rolling Stone). "I know I've kind of been 'not around,' but I've been around. I'm getting really close, and hopefully by mid-summer we'll have some new music people can hear."
It's been two years since her hit record Platinum with singles like "Automatic," "Little Red Wagon" and more. The upcoming record will also be the first album since her divorce from Blake Shelton and move from Oklahoma to Nashville.
"It's been a really cool journey because I've lived in Nashville for the last year almost now," she says. "I've been able to write so much more than I had before, just not being on the road constantly and moving from Oklahoma. All my friends [in Nashville] are songwriters. We're either hanging out and accidentally wrote a song or we had it set up, so I probably wrote like five days a week for five months straight."
Lambert confirmed her relationship with singer-songwriter Anderson East in January. It will be interesting to see if she wrote any songs with him. They dueted on Valentine's Day during one of East's shows.
The singer is currently on her 2016 Keeper of the Flame Tour.
