Fans anticipating Miranda Lambert’s newest project, The Marfa Tapes, are in for a special treat. Lambert’s new album is just around the corner, and it’s coming with its own film. Lambert’s fans can expect an insight into her creative process when watching the film.
Lambert shared a sneak peek of the film, where she sings a beautiful rendition of her beloved song, Tin Man, while sitting on the back of a truck. In the video, which you can watch below or by clicking here, her performance of Tin Man is truly chilling. Her beautifully smooth vocals take center stage.
“We made a film for ‘The Marfa Tapes’ record because we wanted y’all to feel like you were right there with us in the creative process,” the post read, “Y’all have been a big part of this song’s journey, so I wanted to give you a sneak peek of “Tin Man” from the film before it premieres Saturday at 7 pm ET right here on Facebook.”
Fans Get Excited for Miranda Lambert’s New Album
Furthermore, the comments reflected that Lambert continues to “wow” an audience.
“Absolutely raw and real!” One person wrote, “Thank you for sharing you beautifully unedited. So moving. Pure talent.”
“Love this so much! Voice of an angel,” Someone else said.
Another person commented on the message of the album as a whole. “I love everything The Marfa Tapes represents.” They wrote, “Not sure a more appropriate album could have been released after this year. Something so beautiful about raw voices and guitars. Thank you for sharing the journey with us.”
Miranda Lambert’s The Marfa Tapes is a more raw, unedited album than what people expect from modern-day music. The album has bare minimum production. It was written and recorded in Marfa, Texas.
“It’s scary, it’s risky. And it’s very very vulnerable to not have any fixes,” Lambert said, “[To] not have any production. To just let the wind blow and the birds and the cows, and kind of let it be.” There are even points in the album where you can hear border patrol aircrafts flying overhead.
For many, the album is an important moment in the current landscape of music. With many high-production albums, the authenticity that comes with someone simply sitting down with an old guitar and singing a tune sometimes feels like a thing of the past. With Miranda Lambert’s The Marfa Tapes, authenticity is at the forefront. The Marfa Tapes releases on May 7th.
