Miranda Lambert’s ‘The Weight of These Wings’ Is a Double Album
For Miranda Lambert fans who can't wait for the release of the singer's upcoming album, now there's reason to be doubly excited. The singer has announced that The Weight of These Wings will be a double album.
The singer continues to leak details through social media. She initially revealed the album title and release date through Instagram, and she used an Instagram video once more to reveal the titles of each disc: The first one will be called "The Nerve," and the second one will be called "The Heart."
A press release confirmed the double album, stating that the Nov. 18 release will include a total of 24 songs.
Anticipation has been building for The Weight of These Wings, especially in light of the singer's well-publicized divorce from Blake Shelton. The aftermath of that relationship was detailed in Shelton's If I'm Honest. Lambert has been clear that her album will also be ... well, honest.
“Every record I’ve ever made has been a reflection of where I am right then in my life, however old I am. And I’ve never held back at all,” Lambert explains. “But this time, with what I happened to be going through in my life, being honest was never really a choice. Everybody knew anyway. So I just said, I’m gonna journal it, and — good days and bad days — use it for my art.”
Don't expect The Weight of These Wings to be a sad breakup album, though.
“I’m never gonna have an album that’s quote-unquote a ‘heartbreak album’. Because everybody has bad moments, and then you come out of it, and you have a great moment, and then you have some somber times,” she says. “I want an emotional journey, because that’s what life is, and I want to document that.”
