Miranda Lambert is gearing up to release a brand new record, The Marfa Tapes.
All About The New Album From Miranda Lambert
Her ninth studio record will feature Jon Randall and Jack Ingram. The trio recorded the project in Marfa, Texas. They described the sound as raw. “You can hear the wind blowing, the cows mooing,” Lambert shared. “We wanted you to feel like you were right there with us, sitting around the campfire, escaping the world, disappearing into the music.”
Their first single, “In His Arms,” debuts at Midnight on Friday (March 5). Their full album will drop on May 7 and fans can pre-order the album, vinyl and pre-save it via streaming services.
So what is so special about Marfa? For Lambert, she goes to the small town whenever she needs an escape.
She explained that they recharged, “get inspired by its beauty,” and write songs together. “‘Tin Man’ was the 1st we shared with you. ‘Tequila Does,’ the 2nd. In between, we’ve written 13 more. It’s about time to share them w/ y’all.”
