Miranda Lambert has just released a new album, but she’s reportedly not going to promote it.
Lambert is taking her cues from Beyoncé, a source told Page Six, and will leave listeners guessing as to who the songs in her record, “The Weight of These Wings,” are about. The source also said that the country singer has been offered to be interviewed by various publications, but she refused and maintained that she wanted her music to “speak for itself.”
The source also claimed that Lambert’s ex-husband Blake Shelton and his girlfriend Gwen Stefani promoted their albums but these didn’t fare well, so she will try not to do the same. The insider added that Lambert is pulling a Beyoncé with the record, in that the album has 24 tracks and the songs all have a story to tell that is related to her real life.
“It’s similar to what Beyoncé did with ‘Lemonade,’” the source said. “‘Is this about Jay Z? Did she really do this?’ It’s really similar with all that’s been happening in the public eye.”
Lambert’s camp has yet to comment on whether the information given by the source is correct.
The country singer announced the news about “The Weight of These Wings” via a Twitter video in September.
Lambert has not talked about the content of the album, but she did start working on the record after she and Shelton called it quits. The first single from the record, “Vice,” was believed to be about the demise of her relationship with Shelton, but the singer never addressed the rumors.
Meanwhile, aside from listening to Lambert’s new album, fans can also expect to see the singer perform at the Thanksgiving Parade. She will perform alongside Sting and the cast of “On Your Feet!,” “The Color Purple” and “School of Rock,” according to Taste of Country.
