While we might still get one more single from Miranda Lambert‘s fourth album, “Four The Record,” the Texan superstar has admitted that she’ll be working on her next solo album as soon as August. For fans expecting more angry, break-up anthems from the fiery singer they might be in for a shock – she’s been listening to a different kind of country lately.
In an interview with AZ Central, Miranda said:
“I’m going into the studio in August to make my fifth solo album. And I think I’m just gonna have fun because I’ve been serious a lot. I’ve written songs about killing people and sad songs, and I really want to do a tour that’s just a lot of fun, so I want to do an album with more fun songs. And I mean, don’t get me wrong. I’ll definitely have my serious Miranda Lambert-style songs, but everything I’m listening to now that I’m liking is kind of a jam that you could listen to driving around on back roads or on your boat.”
Miranda also admits that she gets nervous when making her albums:
“Yeah! I mean, I freak out every time. I’m like a basket case when it’s time to make a record. I get so nervous as to ‘Is this gonna work? Is this gonna be the album that stops selling, that stops getting nominated?’ I know that I can’t live like that. I can’t do my whole career like that. But it definitely crosses my mind.”
Miranda just released her second Pistol Annies album, “Annie Up,” earlier this year.
