Miranda Lambert releases ‘Actin Up’ off upcoming album ‘Palomino’

Miranda Lambert

As her GRAMMY-nominated Elle King collaboration “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” hits Top 3 at US Country radio and “If I Was A Cowboy” continues to climb the Top 20, reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year Miranda Lambert reveals even more music off her forthcoming eighth studio album with today’s release of “Actin’ Up.” The cheeky mid-tempo anthem serves as the opening track on Palomino, set for release 29th April.

With the progressive 15-song album, her first solo project since 2019’s GRAMMY-winning Wildcard (despite a busy interim that included releasing the GRAMMY-nominated collaborative project The Marfa Tapes as well as the Pistol Annies’ celebratory Hell of a Holiday), Lambert has crafted a record that explores the world and the people in it, seeking beauty and adventure all around. Yet even with primarily fictional characters leading the way, the Texan’s own identity emerges lyrically in the second verse of the lead track, out now: I got my own kind of country / Kind of funky.

That signature style will be on full display later this year, when the woman celebrated as “one of this century’s best artists… deeply unafraid to follow her own rules, co-write almost all her own songs, and (lyrically) burn down the occasional house or two” in Rolling Stone’s “The RS Interview,” on stands in the current April issue, heads to Las Vegas for her “Velvet Rodeo.” Tickets to the 24-date Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino residency beginning this September go on sale to the general public today at 10 am PT/6pm UK via Ticketmaster.com/MirandaVegas.
