The rumors were true about Miranda Lambert. After teasing that something might be released today, the singer put out a new song, "Mess With My Head."
But the song is pretty much a straight ahead rocker.
"'Mess with My Head' is a departure from anything that I've done before," said Lambert. "It has a real rock edge. Part of that comes from my co-writers, Luke Dick and Natalie Hemby, and the other part of that comes from spending time in New York City. Being there has put a new energy into my music and my writing."
Hemby has written songs previously recorded by Lambert and is a member of The Highwomen, the group including Maren Morris, Brandi Carlile and Amanda Shires.
Lambert indicated on social media that she may be releasing something today as she posted the name of the song and the words "Friday."
Lambert's recently-released single, "It All Comes Out in the Wash," which set a career high upon its release to country radio on July 21, with 112 Billboard and Mediabase/Country Aircheck stations and SiriusXM The Highway onboard in its first week. The song was co-written by Lambert and The Love Junkies (Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna, Liz Rose). Lambert also put out "Locomotive," a co-write with Ashley Monroe and K.S. Rhoads. Monroe is a member of Pistol Annies, Lambert's side group.
Lambert will hit the road for the Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour this fall, with special guests Maren Morris and Elle King, as well as Pistol Annies, Tenille Townes, Ashley McBryde and Caylee Hammack on various dates.
