Miranda Lambert Finds Peace in a Chaotic World With New Single ‘Bluebird’ [LISTEN]
Miranda Lambert takes a reflective, peaceful attitude toward life's tumultuous times with "Bluebird," the second single to be released off her newest album, Wildcard. Press play above to listen.
"Bluebird" will be going for adds at country radio on Dec. 9. Lambert co-wrote the new tune with Luke Dick and Natalie Hemby.
"If the house just keeps on winnin' / I've got a wildcard up my sleeve," Lambert sings in the song's chorus, in a nod toward her new record's title. "And if love keeps givin' me lemons / I'll just mix 'em in my drink / And if the whole wide world stops singin' / And all the stars go dark / I turn a light on in my soul and keep a bluebird in my heart."
"Bluebird" follows "It All Comes Out in the Wash" as a single from Wildcard. Lambert's new music demonstrates quite a bit of experimentation, from the psychedelic pop-rock tendencies of "Mess With My Head" to the hard-rocking edge of "Locomotive." Amid a batch of new songs that play with genre boundaries, "Bluebird" is one of the closest tracks to the country sound that fans associate with Lambert's musical style.
"When people listen to this record, I want them to know that I see them and hear them," Lambert says of Wildcard. "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," she adds, "just be who you are, and move on from the moments you you couldn't live in."
