Miranda Lambert Announces New Album 'Wildcard'

Miranda Lambert has announced that her new album, Wildcard, will be released on November 1 via Vanner Records/RCA Records Nashville.

Lambert previously released three tracks from the album - "It All Comes Out in the Wash," "Locomotive," and "Mess With My Head" - and on Thursday, she released the fourth song, titled "Bluebird."

Wildcard, which is Miranda Lambert's seventh studio album, was jointly produced by the country music star and Jay Joyce.

"When people listen to this record, I want them to know that I see them and hear them," Lambert said in a statement. "I feel you, because I'm just a girl from East Texas, writing about all the things that go on in my world and in the worlds of people around me."

"I want people to get along, you know, just be who you are, own it and move on from the moments you couldn't live in," she added.

The Highwomen Share Re-imagined Version Of Classic 'Highwayman'

Country supergroup The Highwomen have released their unique spin on the classic track, "Highwayman."

Newly dubbed "Highwomen," the track explores the various "fates that befall" ordinary women across the nation.

"They all died doing things that men do," said group member, Brandi Carlile of the original song, which was written and recorded by Jimmy Webb in 1977 and later remade by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and Kris Kristofferson in 1985.

Stories told in the remade version include those of "a doctor convicted of witchcraft; an immigrant who died trying to get over the border but got the kids over safe and sound; a preacher; and a freedom rider who gets shot," shared Carlile.

With Sheryl Crow on backing vocals and Jason Isbell on guitar, the brand-new track was premiered on Apple Music's Beats 1 on Tuesday, August 13.

Meanwhile, the supergroup is gearing up to release its debut, eponymous album on September 6.
