Posted by Miranda Lambert on Thursday, 29 April 2021

This new music video, premiering first on Facebook, showcases Lambert performing the 2017 ACM Song of the Year winner, which she penned with Ingram and Randall, with nothing more than an acoustic guitar against the sprawling, expansive terrain. Lambert surprised fans with an impromptu Q&A on Facebook Live ahead of the video’s premiere, sharing stories from the upcoming releases.

“The Marfa Tapes Film” will stream Saturday, May 8 (7:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. CT) and fans on Facebook will get a first look for the first 24 hours via Lambert’s official Facebook page. Directed by Spencer Peeples, the film features live performances set against the West Texas backdrop, candid interviews, and behind-the-scenes footage captured during the five-day album recording sessions in Marfa last November.

Meanwhile, The Marfa Tapes album arrives May 7 via Vanner Records/RCA Nashville (pre-order/pre-save here). Early reviews have raved about the LP, which Entertainment Weekly proclaims “both familiar and new in equal measure, and one of the most inspired projects Lambert has ever released.” The Austin American-Statesman declares the album “an earnest collection of heartache ballads, campfire yarns and rambunctious story songs propelled by colorful characters making questionable life choices.” Nashville Lifestyles also applauds the “fascinating” work that “only an artist at her peak could pull off.”

In addition to “Tin Man,” available album cuts include “wistful and romantic” (Billboard) “In His Arms,” “harmony-drenched cheating saga” (Rolling Stone) “Am I Right Or Amarillo,” and the “slow, sexy” (Whiskey Riff) ballad “ Anchor.”

Barely a dot on the map, Marfa is an eccentric outpost in the midst of a vast expanse of nothingness, the perfect place to lose – or find – yourself. For Lambert, Randall, and Ingram, it’s both. For more than half a decade, the desolate location has become a songwriting haven for the trio, yielding both massive hits and profound personal growth. Recorded raw and loose with just a pair of microphones and an acoustic guitar, The Marfa Tapes is a stunning work of audio verité; an intimate, unadorned snapshot of a moment in time fueled by love, trust, and friendship.

The trio recorded much of the album outdoors, inviting the ambient sounds of the desert to seep into their live, bare bones performances, and the atmosphere is utterly transportive. While a couple of the tracks may already be familiar to listeners – “Tin Man” as well as fan favorite “Tequila Does” – the vast majority of these songs have never been heard outside of Marfa. The result is a candid, unvarnished look at Lambert, Randall, and Ingram’s undeniable chemistry in its purest, most honest form.

01) In His Arms

ABOUT JACK INGRAM: 

A true songwriter’s songwriter, Jack Ingram’s list of admirers reads like a who’s who of modern country and Americana: Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, Patty Griffin, Steve Earle, Todd Snider, Little Big Town, Pat Green, the list goes on and on. Born and raised in Texas, Ingram spent more than a decade grinding it out in the trenches before landing his first number one in 2005. Since then, he’s taken home a pair of ACM Awards, landed CMA and GRAMMY nominations, and toured with everyone from Sheryl Crow and Brooks & Dunn to Brad Paisley and Dierks Bentley. His most recent album, 2019’s Ridin’ High…Again, was a critical hit, praised by Rolling Stone as “searing” and hailed by the Dallas Morning News as “a gloriously raw, sweaty record full of swirling dust and swagger.”

ABOUT MIRANDA LAMBERT:
Hailed as “the most riveting country star of her generation” by NPR , Miranda Lambert has spent much of her career defying expectations, balancing massive commercial success with a fiercely independent spirit that’s guided her every step of the way. Over the course of eight studio albums, the Texas native has managed to sell seven million records in the US alone, top the Billboard Country Airplay chart six times, and take home three GRAMMY Awards, 14 CMA Awards, and a staggering 35 ACM Awards (including a record-breaking nine consecutive wins for Female Vocalist of the Year). In addition to her celebrated solo output, Lambert has also released three critically acclaimed albums with Pistol Annies, her chart-topping trio with fellow Nashville songwriters Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley.

ABOUT JON RANDALL:
GRAMMY-winner Jon Randall began his musical career at the age of 20, when he landed a dream gig playing guitar with Emmylou Harris’ Nash Ramblers. Since then, Randall has gone on to considerable acclaim as a writer, producer, and solo artist with his fingerprints on countless country hits performed by everyone from Dierks Bentley and Guy Clark to Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss. On top of his Billboard chart-topping work in the studio, Randall has also garnered both CMA and ACM Song of the Year Awards, most recently for 2017’s “Tin Man,” which he co-wrote with Miranda Lambert and Jack Ingram.
