It's been two years since the release of Miranda Lambert's last album, Platinum, and the trailblazing superstar – a modern fusion of grit and glam – is now saying the wait for her new music is almost over.
Speaking Thursday night in the CMA Music Festival press room just before taking the Nissan Stadium stage, Lambert revealed that she's been working on new tunes for about a year, and they should start rolling out in a few short weeks.
"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 said, beaming. "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."
There's no word what kind of topics she'll be covering, but after moving to Nashville and finalizing her divorce from Blake Shelton, Lambert says her songwriting has increased exponentially.
"It's been a really cool journey because I've lived in Nashville for the last year almost now," she said. "I've been able to write so much more than I had before, just not being on the road constantly and moving from Oklahoma. All my friends [in Nashville] are songwriters. We're either hanging out and accidentally wrote a song or we had it set up, so I probably wrote like five days a week for five months straight."
