Miranda Lambert is gearing up to drop a new single, “Bluebird,” from her seventh studio album, Wildcard. The hopeful tune follows the release of lead single, “It All Comes Out in the Wash,” in July.
“Bluebird, which Miranda co-wrote with Luke Dick and Natalie Hemby, impacts country radio on Dec. 9.
“This song is special,” says Miranda. “It’s got this hope to it. It’s got a darkness too, though, but it’s also hopeful. Life is going to give you lemons, period. If there wasn’t problems then we wouldn’t appreciate the great days, but going through those things and overcoming problems—whatever they are—makes us strong and appreciate the sun. You know, it’s like ten straight days of rain and then the sun comes out and you’re like, ‘I forgot how much I loved it.’ Since we wrote ‘Bluebird,’ I’ve been seeing bluebirds everywhere. And the bluebirds have been there, but I never saw them like I see them now. It kinda reminds me to open my eyes to what’s around me.”
