A few hours after we posted the live version of “Mama’s Broken Heart” from Miranda Lambert’s upcoming “Four The Record” album, Miranda has announced some pretty cool news about the album coming out in November. She will release a limited edition deluxe version of the album, which includes six out of fourteen songs co-written by the Texan firehouse. The deluxe edition will include a DVD and a bonus song not included with the standard edition. The DVD includes Miranda sharing the stories behind each of the tracks on the album.
The record includes “Better In The Long Run,” which is a duet with husband Blake Shelton that was co-written by fellow Pistol Annies member Ashley Monroe, Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley, and Gordie Sampson.
“I’m so ready for the fans to hear it,” said LAMBERT. “‘Baggage Claim’ is such a groovy song and I’m glad it’s the first single. But just like Revolution, not one song represents the whole album. There are ‘All Kinds Of Kinds’ of music on the Record, and I’m so excited for it to get out there.”
“Four The Record” includes a Brandi Carlile song, who sings backing vocals on “Same Old You.”Another guest vocalist is her friend Josh Kelley on “Baggage Claim.”
“To me, part of having a long career is to keep reinventing yourself, keep reinventing your music, and make it fresh. And it’s kind of crazy to think that I’m on my fourth record, and after what Revolution did for my career, I was nervous, but what am I gonna do? So I just started writing, started collecting songs, finding songs, and listening to artists, and I just found that I’m gonna just let the music lead it. I just think I followed my heart,” said Lambert.
Miranda will premiere her album in its entirety on Bob Kingsley’s Top 40 starting October 28th in a 90-minute special.
