Miranda Lambert Shares ‘The Weight of These Wings’ Track Listing
Each of The Weight of These Wings' two discs contains 12 tracks. "Vice" is Track No. 8 on the first disc, the Nerve; that disc also includes songs such as "Highway Vagabond," from which Lambert's 2017 tour takes its name, "Pink Sunglasses" and "Covered Wagon." The second disc, the Heart, features "Things That Break," "Keeper of the Flame" -- from which Lambert's summer tour took its name -- and "Dear Old Sun." Co-writers on The Weight of These Wings include Ashley Monroe, Jack Ingram, Gwen Sebastian, Shane McAnally, Lucie Silvas and Lambert's boyfriend, Anderson East.
After first announcing The Weight of These Wings in mid-September, Lambert revealed the record's cover artwork on Sept. 30. She made both announcements, revealed that the project is a double album and shared its track listing via Instagram.
Anticipation has been building for The Weight of These Wings, especially in light of the singer’s well-publicized divorce from Blake Shelton. The aftermath of that relationship was detailed in Shelton’s If I’m Honest. Lambert has been clear that her album will also be … well, honest.
“Every record I’ve ever made has been a reflection of where I am right then in my life, however old I am. And I’ve never held back at all,” Lambert explains. “But this time, with what I happened to be going through in my life, being honest was never really a choice. Everybody knew anyway. So I just said, I’m gonna journal it, and — good days and bad days — use it for my art.”
Don’t expect The Weight of These Wings to be a sad breakup album, though.
“I’m never gonna have an album that’s quote-unquote a ‘heartbreak album’. Because everybody has bad moments, and then you come out of it, and you have a great moment, and then you have some somber times,” she says. “I want an emotional journey, because that’s what life is, and I want to document that.”
After releasing The Weight of These Wings on Nov. 18, Lambert will begin her 2017 Highway Vagabond Tour on Jan. 26 in Evansville, Ind.
