Earlier this week, Miranda Lambert posted to her social media “We don’t know what we’re doing, but we know we’re supposed to be doing it.” and tagged Jack Ingram and Jon Randall.
Now we know what the trio was doing…working on a new music project!
Today Miranda announced a new album, The Marfa Tapes.
Talking about the new music collection Miranda says, “They’re raw. You can hear the wind blowing, the cows mooing… We wanted you to feel like you were right there with us, sitting around the campfire, escaping the world, disappearing into the music.”
Fans can check out the first song from The Marfa Tapes, — The album arrives May 7th — watch the music video for “In His Arms,” right here
For those unfamiliar with Marfa – it’s a city in the high desert of the Trans-Pecos in far West Texas, between the Davis Mountains and Big Bend National Park.
Miranda shares, “Every time I need an escape, I go to Marfa, TX. Jack Ingram, and Jon Randall come. We recharge. We get inspired by its beauty. We write songs.”
Turns out that Miranda has included songs that she’s written in Marfa on her last two albums, The Weight of These Wings and Wildcard. She says, “‘Tin Man’ was the 1st one we shared with you. ‘Tequila Does’ was the 2nd. In between, we’ve written 13 more. And it’s about time to start sharing them with y’all…”
