It was life transforming, through Lynns gentle, kind and honest counseling she helped me acknowledge what I was ignoring, that my problem was in fact an addiction. I started listening to Lynn Lambert’s Release the Weight CD. At the time, I had the belief that I was not able to lose weight anymore. I had gained . pounds the previous year-not usual for me-and, after trying to lose it various times, felt it was too difficult to lose weight over the age of 40. I had resigned myself to having ‘middle-age spread’ but did not feel good about myself. When I heard about the CD, I immediately put it to use.
So Lambert decided to journal her life after marriage and use it for her art. And that's precisely what The Weight of These Wings is: a 24-entry musical journal (Lambert wrote all but four tunes). That's why some tunes, like "Highway Vagabond" and "Pink Sunglasses," feel fun and carefree. Much was made of Lambert's decision to release a double album. It's bold in a time when people barely have the attention for an EP. And frankly, most modern country artists aren't able to focus on 24 coherent songs that form one story. Hell, we're lucky to get a coherent 12-song album from the average mainstreamer nowadays. And that's not a dig at the artists, it's just a testament to their commitments that stretch them so thin the writing and recording process almost feels secondary.
Lambert's new album is called The Weight of These Wings. The record's rumored title was Records I Never Heard. The first disc will be called The Nerve, and the second one will be called The Heart. In some ways, Lambert says that the songs on The Weight of These Wings will be no different than others she's released, in that her music has always been an honest reflection of her life; the difference, of course, is that part of her recent life has been her well-publicized divorce from Shelton. Lambert admits that she wrote "Vice" at the "exact time of the s-t hitting the fan," and chances are good that more songs on the record will reference - directly or indirectly - the famous couple's split.
18) is the most musically and conceptually cohesive release yet from country music's most respected younger female star. It bears a strong connection to other works by contemporary country women demanding equal time and space with men, like Rosanne Cash, the Dixie Chicks and the Joni Mitchell of Hejira
Miranda Lambert may have just tipped her hand on the title and release date for her upcoming sixth studio album.
Miranda Lambert's sixth album, "The Weight of These Wings," is out today (Nov. 18) and our critic takes a listen to the double-album that isn't a break-up record, but often finds the country star in a reflective mood. The announcement of Lambert’s sixth album, The Weight of These Wings (Nov. 18, Sony Music Nashville), had fans expecting a very particular kind of journey: a fork in the road, since she started writing in earnest shortly after the announcement of her split from her husband of four years, fellow Nashville star Blake Shelton. But she was clear: I’m never gonna have an album that’s quote-unquote a 'heartbreak album,’ Lambert said in an interview with Billboard this summer. Heartbreak or not, Shelton’s shadow does occasionally fall across the hefty double album.
ToC Critic’s Pick: Miranda Lambert, ‘The Weight of These Wings’. Sony Music Nashville. Miranda Lambert’s gypsy heart beats strong on The Weight of These Wings, in spite of the scars. Themes of heartache and untethered rambling dominate the 24 songs on her two-disc release. There are few loose ends, but plenty of surprises. The biggest is how mellow the arrangements are as a whole. If Lambert didn’t write the song in the wake of her divorce, then the sky isn’t blue. It’s her lowest point - that moment when she’s totally given up on love. Hey there Mr. Tin Man, I’m glad we talked this out, You can take mine if you want it, It’s in pieces now, By the way there Mr. Tin Man, If you don’t mind the scars, You give me your armor, You can have my heart, she sings.
Rubberneckers have anticipated The Weight of These Wings since Lambert split from Blake Shelton, ending their four-year term as country’s First Couple (another thankless job). Sure, it’s a breakup record. But it’s more about songs for the ages than tabloid raw meat. With an A-list coauthor team including Natalie Hemby, Liz Rose, Ashley Monroe and Lambert’s boyfriend, Anderson East, Lambert cowrote 20 of 24 tracks and filled out the rest with well-chosen covers; see Covered Wagon, a 1971 jam by singer-songwriter Danny O’Keefe, and You Wouldn’t Know Me, by Texas troubadour Shake Russell . It’s emblematic of an album that never wallows in breakup pain, but instead deals – making plans, getting drunk, flirting, testifying and, above all, moving on. And if you’re fingering a few scars of your own, you’ll be rooting for her. In This Article: Miranda Lambert. Want more Rolling Stone?
