THE WEIGHT OF THESE WINGS (RCA Records Nashville) the upcoming sixth studio album by Miranda is set to be released on November 18, 2016. The album will consist of 24 tracks on two discs, Disc 1–The Nerve, and Disc 2−The Heart.
It’s the first since PLATINUM in 2014 which made a debut in America at #1 on both the Billboard 200 and Billboard Top Country Albums with 179,600 copies sold and made a bow at No.52 on the Official UK Top 100 Chart (1,725 sales; chart week June 14, 2014) then off the chart

The Weight Of These Wings lead single "Vice" (writers: Lambert, Josh Osborne, Shane McAnally) was first released to country radio on July 18, 2016 with an Impact date of July 25th.
It debuted at #2 on the Hot Country Songs chart (chart dated Aug 6, 2016) with an opening week sales of 64,000 copies and 14.6 million audience impressions, becoming her highest debuting single on that chart, beating the #5 debut of "Somethin' Bad."
After 17 weeks on the chart it currently holds a #10 slot.  It also debuted at #18 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, besting the No.26 debut of "Automatic" as her highest debut on that chart. After 17 weeks on the chart “Vice” has peaked at #11

Listen to the pre-grat track and self penned "We Should Be Friends"


The enormous 24-song project will include all songs she helped write. Shane McAnally is one of her favorite co-writers, although Lambert has indicated that she’s written with many, many people over the last year-and-a-half.

In August, Lambert described the album in her own words, when she told Billboard: 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. I want an emotional journey, because that’s what life is, and I want to document that.


The sprawling concept album, once threatened by the song-centric demands of the MP3 era, has lately reĂ«merged as a status symbol for pop stars who can afford to shirk the demands of old-fashioned hitmaking. If you are BeyoncĂ©, you can bestow “Lemonade” upon the world unannounced, secure in the knowledge that just about everyone will eagerly swallow it in one gulp. Lambert is not quite BeyoncĂ©. But in the context of mainstream country music, which typically requires fat-free albums packed with potential hits, “The Weight of These Wings” seems like both a protest against business as usual and a power play: Lambert is justifiably confident that listeners care enough to follow her through twenty-four songs, many of them rather contemplative, without a single big-name guest star....MIRANDA LAMBERT’S POWER PLAY:  The country singer’s sprawling concept album, “The Weight of These Wings,” defies Nashville wisdom—and is one of the year’s best releases..Read More at New Yorker.com
