It’s been a little bit of a wait for new Miranda Lambert music. Obviously the last year or so have been difficult. Miranda hasn’t spoken publicly about the details and that’s how it should be. But with musicians and artists the stories eventually come to form, at least a little bit, in their music and art.
The new single from Miranda Lambert is here and it sounds like there is real emotion behind this one.
Vice – Miranda Lambert
The first time I heard this one I related to it instantly. The mood and the emotion that come through in the performance are incredible and it connects with anyone that’s feeling like they make decisions that they know are the wrong decisions later on.
The weird thing in life is that we all have these things that we do that others view as negative. But to us, especially in the moment, we can’t help ourselves. They seem good. They seem like they won’t hurt others and it seems like it’s all just fine.
But then the backfire comes and we can see clearer. And we’re good for awhile, but then things maybe go back down the same wrong path once again.
That’s where the title comes from in this one…
I think this is a big song for Miranda. Anyone that’s made mistakes and that has vices will be able to relate to this one. And in my experience that’s just about everyone out there :raises hand:…
What do you think of this one? Do the lyrics surprise you at all?
