Miranda Lambert Confirms New Single Called ‘Vice’
Miranda Lambert has confirmed the title of her new single, "Vice," albeit sneakily.
Rumors have been rampant online about the song, which she is said to have co-written with two of Nashville's top songwriters, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne.
The singer posted a teasing picture to her Instagram on Wednesday (July 13), showing a hand holding a liquor glass. She followed up with another post on Thursday afternoon, another black and white showing a needle dropping on an old-timey single record. The label of the single is blurred, but appears to be the word "Vice" that's been deliberately obscured.
Cadillac Jack of station 101.5 KICKS tells Taste of Country that Lambert's vice in the song is men:
According to a press release, the single will see official release on Monday (July 18) at 2PM CT/3PM ET. There has been some speculation that Lambert's upcoming sixth studio album will be titled Records I Never Heard, but neither the singer nor her label have confirmed any of those reports.
Lambert has said that she has been hard at work on new music that she hopes to release by mid-summer.
“I’ve really worked since last summer just writing and recording, so no one is more excited than me to have the next thing come through and show off what I’ve been doing,” she told reporters in the press room on the opening night of the 2016 CMA Music Festival in Nashville on June 9 (quote via Rolling Stone Country). “I know I’ve kind of been ‘not around,’ but I’ve been around. I’m getting really close, and hopefully by mid-summer we’ll have some new music people can hear."
